    Ported barrel for ccw?

    I'm looking at a cz100 for ccw in 40 cal. The barrel is ported, and I just wonder if this will blind me if I need it at night. Any thoughts?

    I don't know if it will blind you but a Range Master (Michael Blout) for the Detroit Police Dept. put on a demostration on why you don't what a ported barrel for a carry weapon.

    Taking a raw chicken drumstick and holding it over the ports approximately 2" inches. It nearly strip all the flesh off the bone. Some would say what does that matter? His contention was that if you got into a westling match for your weapon (remember he's a range master for a department) that grievious harm could still be inflicted even if you weren't shot.

    So I guess that you need to be the judge whether it's worth it?

    You can actually have a barrel ported on the sides of the barrel & it's almost as effective but not so hot for anybody standing to your right or left.

    Ported barrel

    If you're planning on doing multiple shots, (as in if you're using a lower caliber), a top ported barrel may allow you to get back on target faster.

    Probably not necessary

    The CZ100 in .40 caliber is a 23.4 ounce polymer frame pistol holding 12 rounds of ammo. It is very similar in size to the Glock 23.

    I don't think barrel porting is really necessary in the CZ100, based on my experience owning a ported Glock 23. The recoil just isn't that great to justify it, and there are disadvantages to porting, as others have noted. After buying my ported Glock 23 and firing it, I bought a replacement barrel for about $125 (no porting holes) and use that most of the time. Porting is useful for some gun games, where rapid shooting saves a little time on the clock, but not too functional for defensive use of the pistol.

    Talking

    For CCW I'd go with non-ported/compensated... even if you need to dumb down your calibre... Shoot with what you can control and hit accuratly with... Shot placement is key.

    Someone once said somewhere, maybe even in here...

    The Calibre of your shooting is more important then the calibre you shoot!

    Kinda a good saying I think.

    Much of the time, I use a barrel-ported 45 acp pistol when I carry; I've, also, put many thousand of rounds through it without: losing my night vision, blackening my front sight any more than usual, setting my clothes on fire, or overcooking a chicken leg.

    There is slide-porting; and, there is barrel-porting. I have been using barrel-porting for, at least, the past 30 years. Gee, I wish this silly debate would just go away. Not ALL porting is bad porting!
