muzzel flash

more mussel flash out of the ported barrel (if the slide is also ported). It will cause more blindness in low light situations. the muzzel flash out of a regular barrel is projected forward. the muzzel flash out of a ported barrel will be projected forwards and through the ports.

All of the hand guns that are ported that I have shoot the portes are in front of your front sight. So, you can't see a thing after the first shot.
