    It would only be a pain in the Butt, the powder residue that will always be on you Rib.and you will grt sick ogwiping it off, other that that it does not help anything.

    I disagree! Porting is good, especially when shooting registered events. The additional noise heard by squadmates, irritates and therefore distracts them, the barrel would be lighter so you can swing faster, your attitude will be improved because you spent all that money improving your gun, you will be able to visualize the significantly ficticious reduction in barrel-rise and if you are a bit obsessive compulsive, you will have something else to attend to when cleaning your gun after every event.

    Like I've said on this site before...I've wasted good money on porting that could have been better spent on entry fees, ammo, gas, motel rooms, single malt scotch, steak dinners, flowers for your sweetheart...you name it....

    I bought my TMX used about 20 years ago and it was ported by Pro-Port by the previous owner. No problem with the EDM method of porting and it is a minor nuisance to clean the powder residue off the barrel. The gun has very little recoil and does not have a recoil reducer or even extra weight and the high rib is automatically heavier than a TM-1. I have an MX-3 Doubles gun the same age as the TMX and it is not ported and also has little recoil compared to a previously owned Browning Citori that was Pro-Ported. My opinion: porting is unnecessary.

    I too had a gun ported years ago. All it did was reduce the money avilable for psychotropic drugs and luring young boys. To make matters even worse, I am a bit obsessive compulsive, believing that a clean gun is a happy gun. Cleaning out all those little, oval, holes created a noticeable pain in that upon which I sit.

    So, given the credibility of the above, the verdict is to go ahead and get that sucker ported. You'll be glad you did.

    Hmm. Makes more sense to me to have your heads(car) ported than your gun. I dont like em.

    all my guns that are keepers are ported. with high cheek bones like a girl any recoil that doesn't hit my face is appreciated. Does porting work? Sure it does and anybody who says otherwise is wrong. Porting doesn't reduce muzzel jump it elimantes it. Now, if you don't have girly cheek bones like mine that are way sensative from shooting about 300,000 rounds of factory winchester AA's in an 870 field gun you may not need it in a single barrel gun. I know many people who port their barrels and will not be involved in a pissing match with a bunch of guys on a chat site. Let's put it another way.. Unless your singles avergae is AA you wil lbe better off spending that 150 bucks on lessons from one of the pro's. The mind is a very powerful thing and if your mind sees it as an advantage then by all means do it. The amount of guys who truly will not buy a used trap gun because it is ported is not nearly as large as it might seem from reading this thread. I have looked at thousands of trap guns around thousands of other trap shooters and I have not once seen a guy drop a gun as though snake bit and exclaim" Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO it's ported" Name me one Pro who doesn't have Ported barrels? It's not going to make a shooter out of you but hey? Look at all the people you can piss off without even trying. It's better then one of those VISA Priceless commercials. Jeff

    The POI will be lowered a small amount, usually not enough to notice. Total recoil will not be reduced but mussel jump will be reduced. This could reduce felt recoil on the face for many. Porting is beneficial for at least the first shot on doubles and could allow some shooters to more comfortably keep their head on the stock.

    Clearly, some shooters do not want their guns ported, but surprisingly, they also do not want any other shooters guns ported.

    Jerry, try porting your slug gun and you will see a huge decrease in muzzel jump. It's clear to me that ou have never shot a slug barrel that has been ported or you wouldn't spew as you do. A barrel is ported to elimanate muzzel jump not reduce recoil. Jeff
