    It doesn't illuminate the target completely but you can see enough and the XS Big Dot sight helps as well. The tritium glows really well even though after about 200 rounds gets the white part a little dirty

    I admit to total stupidity, at this point. What's the point in turning the lights off, before you shoot?

    Duh!! Don't you know? The guys busting in in the middle of the night turn on the light to see where you are and then turn it back off, so you will know where they are.

    One of the reasons was to test the theory that C models will make you blind or hurt your night vision or cause you harm shooting it in low light/dark conditions or would be a cool fire show that I could take to Disney World where people would pay me lots of money to watch me perform like the fire shows others perform. Obliviously all those theories failed :supergrin:

    I've got an OEM G33 barrel,
    and an extended dual ported Storm Lake 357 Sig, for my G27.
    In my light baby Glock the high pressure, high velocity,
    round seems to work particularly well with a porting.

    I think you will notice and like the performance.
    Use Speer GDHP, Winchester Ranger T-Series, Federal HST
    or some other high tech round for self defense.
    They run low flash, fast burn, gunpowder.

    Be mindful of the ports.
    I.E. cant the ports away from you during house clearing and close quarters combat.

    Porting is a little louder and brighter.
    But that is generally exaggerated by some -IMHO.
    If you don't like the porting?
    You can always pick up and run an un-ported barrel in that gun.

    Porting or not, flash varies depending on ammo.
    I have a 19C and would be comfortable carrying it.
    Generally speaking, the 19C produces about the same velocity as a 26.

    Now, finally, that makes perfect sense. I was under the impression that this was some sort of weird drill you practiced, periodically.

    Thank you for your patience.:snoopy:

    I know that John Farnam does not recommend ported barrels - I think this is due to the projecting hot gases during retention firing having an impact on the shooters eyes..., in the photo above if the shooter tilts his head slightly toward the gun you can see how a C model might be a poor choice for a carry gun - with .357 Sig's running 10% more pressure than a 40S&W, I'd hazard a guess that Mr. Farnam is correct about this issue...

    It's not an issue. Not with factory porting. Can't say about aftermarket.
