Does the shield of ptolos which gives a 1+ save vs shooting work against magic missiles.

Shooting is what is done is the shooting phase.

Magic missiles are not thrown in the shooting phase.

So no.

In a general sence, no. Though many items do group magic missles and shooting attacks together. Also, other items specify "ranged" attacks, and this would include magic missles. If the Shield of Ptolos explicitly specifies shooting attacks however, it would indeed not work against magic missles.
