    If you're just using for target shooting the porting can be beneficial by reducing muzzle flip...

    If you're using it for self defense and have to fire it close into your body or at a weird angle its going to blow hot gas into your face, plus the muzzle flash will be more visible which can temporarily reduce your ability to see in low light.

    I love mine. The muzzle flip and recoil feels like a 9mm. Don't get it if you're planning on using it as a carry or personal defense. If you have to use it in the dark don't expect to see anything after that.

    If it's for carry:
    1. as said before, possibly hot gas in your face and flash screws up visibility
    2. i'd just get a 3in SC

    My XD .40 has a good bit of muzzle flip. It isn't huge and I could easily shoot it one handed but I could see where a ported model would seriously lower it down.

    I think the ported look cool. I wouldn't get a ported for carry or defense though for the reasons mentioned.

    I have the non-ported normal XD 40 and I love it, you should just check into getting one that isn't ported. :dunno:
