My wife's primary CCW gun is a Taurus model 651 - 2" .357 magnum. We're toying with the idea of sending it in to Mag-na-port to have it ported. What I'm hoping for is to get some 'before and after' stories from those of you who've had your handguns ported (especially those with short barrels) to see if the cash we'll be laying out will be worth the reduction in muzzle flip/felt recoil. When I apporached my gunsmith with the idea, his take was (in a nutshell) "You won't be reducing the recoil much, and you'll be making the gun A LOT louder." I trust the man, but still want to verify. Thanks in advance to all who answer.
