      Port a PM 9 fpr ccw Yes/No ?

      Need some feedback to make a decision. I am trying to decide if it is a good idea or not to port my PM 9. Pros and cons if you please.

      IMHO for a 9mm Kahr no. I would never port a gun unless it was for competion only.

      Try firing a shot from the retention position with a ported gun. I bet you won't want to do it again.

      I don't see a need for porting on a defensive carry pistol. Why add to the muzzle flash. You never know what kind of body position you will need to fire from to save your life.

      It is of such a small size, it would defeat the purpose, and create additional muzzle flash.

      agree
      don't do it
      spend the money on another pocket gun like a 3AT or P32

      as a general rule - don't modify your CCW firearm in any way - or use anything other than factory loads - talk to a knowledgeable defense lawyer and they will tell you why -

      If your strategy is to blind you and your attacker and perhaps burn yourself, go right ahead...

      The reasons for not porting a defense pistol are practical, not legal. Modifying a pistol to reduce recoil won't harm you in court. People who claim otherwise can't cite a case where porting has even been brought up in court. Even the ever-cautious Mas Ayoob doesn't rail against ported guns for defense from the standpoint of courtroom defensibility.

      It's more a matter of the hot jets of gas coming from the gun, not the hot jets of gas coming from a district attorney.
