Quick question, does anyone have a muzzle brake, compensator, or flash hider attached there specific carry firearm?
I always carry owb for comfort reasons. I've tried iwb carrying but it's just comfortable for me. But I just ordered a threaded barrel for my Beretta APX which is my carry gun and was deciding if I wanted a muzzle brake on it.One of my G45's has an OEM threaded bbl.w/Griffin Micro Comp.and a TLR-1 HL.I have two Bravo Concealment holsters(IWB & OWB) for this set up.I like the way it looks and have carried it this way using both holsters.
Some IWB rigs are more comfortable than others.I

All but one of my firearms 9mm, less recoil more capacity.Nope, not on a single one. Well, maybe two of my carry guns have ported barrels, if that counts.
Then again, the highest caliber I use for a carry gun is 9mm, and find it very controllable regardless of barrel length or size. I shot my wife's XPM just fine while she owned it, and if left up to me we would've bought a Shield.
I think on some of the sight block 2011's, the barrel comes out the nose of the side, just like a 1911.I don't know if anyone even makes a flash hider for pistol barrels.
Porting of various types, both factory and aftermarket, was popular about twenty years ago but it seems to have fallen from favor.
One disadvantage of any sort of muzzle attachment on most semiautomatic pistols is that it makes disassembly more difficult. You can't pull the barrel out of the slide without removing the compensator (or whatever) and then you need to re-do whatever sort of thread locking arrangement you had when the pistol goes back together.
