I don't particularly dislike ported barrels. I have, however, done enough shooting in darkness to know that muzzle flash will blind you temporarily, period, and without having a ported barrel. I think defensive ammo makers do a good job of keeping muzzle flash to a minimum on their products. However, if you just woke up out of bed and your eyes are totally adjusted to night vision you will be blinded for a few seconds. Not to mention the noise of the blast will deafen you temporarily as well.

I choose not to have any ported barrels in my care. This is just my choice as I have no problem with them. Let people buy what they want, it's not "your" money...

A revolver, DA or SA, a multy barrel or single shot being much better.
You can force the gun into the target as hard as you require and still have it function.
Autos need not apply.
PS At that point a knife or pushblade would be better.
Can't jam, can't run out of ammo, and does more damage.[ cuts going in-cuts coming out!!!]
What classes?

An autoloader definitely comes with some disadvantages in contact scenarios that need to be acknowledged. While proper training can indeed mitigate them to a significant degree, they are inherent and why I usually prefer a enclosed hammer revolver for my EDC.

Although a knife does possess certain advantages in close-quarters, I would almost always choose a firearm. Many people say otherwise, but I think its because they lack the understanding of how to properly use a firearm in contact situations and think the knife is intuitive or that whatever training they have(such as limited military training) will suffice. My training with the blade is actually much more extensive than my training with firearms, but Id choose a non-ported snub revolver in a fight at clinch range.
