    A short barrel reduces the velocity. Porting will reduce it some more, besides the issues of using porting on a defensive gun.

    I have a 3" Taurus 605, similar to the SP101 but not as heavy. It came with factory Hogue rubber grips and is easy to shoot full .357 ammo. (It has less felt recoil shooting .357s than my wife's .38 special LadySmith with the pretty wood grips).

    I think one of the SP101's shortcomings is the hard grips. I would rather replace them than have the porting.

    YMMV

    Nice! I acquired a couple of Jack Weigand-customized Tame the Beast SP101 snubbies back when he would get them directly from Ruger or a distributor, do the custom work, and then sell them as new guns. Mine did not have the Hybra-porting done; then, as now, folks disagreed on porting defensive guns, so he customized them both ways. I contemplated send him a 4" GP100 for porting, but he retired from custom 'smithing before I acted on it.
