Well porting is a big deal for me! I am looking to purchase a mossberg 930 for 3 gun matches. They have yet to produce a barrel for that gun that is sufficient for 3 gun.
The only barrel that they have close enough to the one I want is a 24 inch PORTED barrel. That will effectively put me in the open class, which i am trying to avoid.
Porting on a shotgun does nothing but make the gun harder to clean.
If Mossberg is listening: why did you hire Jerry Miculek to promote your product for competition shooting, and then not make those products available to the public to use in competition??
