    Default Porting my TAC-14

    Followed recommendations and now own a TAC-14. Looking through the shotgun postings I see ported barrels with 4 to 11 holes! Does SI port when going Stakeout? How many ports are suggested for a 12 gauge? Who does it best? Thanks for any input!

    I think this weekend reconfirmed the value of porting for both those who had it and those who attended and discussed ordering new Stakeouts.
    Do I NEED it? Maybe, maybe not. But would I NEED another Tac14? I canít shoot two at once.

    I am of the opinion that the Tac-14 NEEDS ports and slug sights...

    I got my first 870 in about 1990. It was/is an 870 Express
    combo. I put the slug barrel on, and it never came off except
    for cleaning. The bead just never clicked for me, and the rifle
    sights made for zero ambiguity. As a civilian, my experience
    has only been 3 gun, personal range time, including skeets, etc.
    No lead on meat, as I am not a hunter, so I have to practice with
    what methods I have available, but all of my firearms & my
    mindset are geared for self defense. That's how I found SI &
    why I have stayed.

    I have RMR's on both of my TAC-14'S, which are also a no brainer.
    A must for the lack of the 3rd point of contact. Again, unambiguous.
    And tritium slug sights are the backup, but a must for a self defense
    firearm, in my opinion.

    I knew porting would make a difference, but with managed
    recoil buckshot, they are very pleasant to shoot. However,
    with this discussion, I will get them both ported.

    Lastly, as a response to choirboy. Any firearm geared toward
    self defense, I have at least two of each, if not more, with few
    exceptions. I do this for a few reasons. 1) Long term parts
    availability. Instead of repair kits, I have replacement firearms.
    2) With duplicates I have extra accessibility to the firearm in
    question. I can keep one of them in the car, for example, but
    have access to the duplicate in the house, or where ever I
    have the copy, and with the same manual of arms. The same
    goes for my Glocks, shotguns, & AR's, carry flash lights, etc.

    Sorry to ramble. Great discussion here in this thread, as
    always.

    For the average man who accepts mediocrity as a way of life, no...he doesn't need porting or sights, or anything that the bosses of the gun companies decide he doesn't need...and truly, I suspect many other areas of his life are colored by the popular thought leader Mediocrities. Truly, people of that mind set will find little of value ... or comfort, among our ranks.

    The rest of us, who seek excellence in all things and burn to move beyond the pale into uncharted lands, opportunities and performance levels, that is who we do our work for...that is who we develop methods and machines for. Because we do not allow the low standards of the copliant to affect the ultimate goals of our lives.
