Thoughts on Porting

I just wanted to get some fellow thoughts on getting a gun "Ported". Honestly for us Glock Owners, does this really seem like something that should be considered? I’ve been a Glock Owner for almost 2 years (sadly I’ve NEVER shot it!) and I’m looking forward to getting gin some range time this year. Now that I’m married and a home owner looks like I will be around for a while.

Judging by the article here “Porting” the gun seems to help with “rise” that the Glocks are evidently known for (I did not know this). Do any of you have your Glock or Pistol ported”

Bryant is right.

Muzzle flash is caused by unburned powder burning once the bullet has left the barrel. If you use a load where the powder is completely burned by the time the bullet leaves the barrel, there shouldn't be a muzzle flash.

In fact, in ported guns, the object is to force the expanding gas from the burning/burned powder through the ports in the compensator and keep the muzzle down. The best way is to use a load that completely burns the powder so that you don't end up "wasting" burning powder outside the compensator.
