I've decided to get a 6" barrel for my G20 to make it hunting legal in Wisconsin (where I frequently hunt). I like that Storm Lake offers a blued barrel (don't really want a polished stainless barrel for hunting), so will probably order from them. There's a $15 difference between ported and non-ported so basically a monetary non-issue, just trying to decide whether I wanted it ported. Right now, my thinking is probably to get it ported: 1) I have decided against a long slide and with the port holes being beyond the slide, there's no issue of the port holes interfering with the slide, etc. 2) The recoil is not an issue for me (I frequently hunt with a 44 magnum, so am used to a heavy recoil), but the reduced muzzle flip from porting would be nice. 3) I'll work up some heavy hunting loads and I've read that porting has only a very small effect on bullet velocity. 4) The frequent cited downsides to porting don't really apply to hunting. Any thoughts? Any reasons I shouldn't get it ported?
