This^^^ . Also couldn't the flash in a low light SD situation cause some visual problems. Just a thought.If this is a race gun then your compensation solutions make some sense. If this gun is for "social" purposes they do not. Consider what it will be like if you have to touch one off with the pistol held close to the body. It will not be a pleasant experience for you, and you had better hope it ends the fight in the other person, because your ability to fight on may be impaired by the blast to your face.
I don't enjoy asking a question about ported barrels vs compensators and having everyone tell me that I don't want a comp. So I simplified it to ported barrel vs comp, since reading comprehension seems a bit lacking here.Question is mostly useless and unanswerable until you manage to define at a minimum: the reason for wanting or not wanting the modification (or replacement), your circumstances of intended use, and what you expect as an end result. Probably caliber and model of firearm may be informative to anyone attempting an answer. How much you can or want to spend. Any special ancillary requirements. Permanent or temporary? (in framed context of the preceding questions)
Or do you just enjoy 20 questions games so you can say wrong after someone tries to assist you with a response?
Sort of like asking "Yes or No" without any defining parameters.
Also thats a piss poor comparison unless you plan on using your car for HD.This thread turned to feces fast. All I asked was opinions on a ported barrel vs compensator for my xd45, and I get parroted spew about ports being bad for HD.
Sort of like the illiterates that work at the car parts houses.
"Hi, I'd like to order a solid cam, a Comp Cams 290-degree solid, and the lifter kit."
" You wanna run a solid? You know you'll have to set valve lash."
"Yes, I know, can I order it?"
"You running on the street?"
"Why you run a solid cam on the street? You need a hydraulic cam for the street."
*I consider a lecture on the merits of solid cam design vs hydraulic in regards to lifter ramp angle, opening/closing velocities,rpm limits,etc, and decide it would be a waste of time*
"Can I order the goddam cam or not?"
LMAOThing is seeing a aftermarket comp/ported barrel just screams competition..... or mall ninja, not the first thing I would want for a HD. Some just perfer the KISS method for a gun that they trust their life to.
So I say.... ask your question at Brian enos forum also since they are more oriented to competition and can answer you question about the advantages and disadvantages of ported vs comp.
As for me a comp seems more fesiable as I understand the hotter load you shoot through it the better use it makes of the comp. Also it depends on how much venting you have, softer loads require less hotter would need more. I'm no expert, but the guys at Brian enos will help, best advice .
It's not the lacking of reading, it's the fact that you stated that's it's use is for HD and for some that would be a no-no. If you ever shoot someone with you comp/port pray that the lawyer does not use it in a way that makes you look like a killer.

But yes seriously consider checking out Brian enos, not alot of guys here have as much experience with comp/ported barrels as you do. Yes I was being serious dude....not joking about the lawyer stuff either, go to HEB pick up combat handgun (aug 2011 ed) and read the self defense section.LMAO
The lawyers and prosecutors here don't care about ported barrels and such. Jeff County, Texas, SD shootings get no-billed all the time. This isn't NJ or Cally.But yes seriously consider checking out Brian enos, not alot of guys here have as much experience with comp/ported barrels as you do.
