    Just saw an advertisement for a 14 inch, 12 gauge, ported Shockwave barrel by Carlson. Say it has 22 ports to minimize muzzle lift. Priced at $189.

    Wonder how much extra noise this creates?

    Any thoughts?

    I wonder how many Carlson plans to manufacture.

    Carlson seems to strive to give the customer what they want. I figured it was only a matter of time before they did that.

    I have spoken candidly with them a few times and like me, they're not personal fans of porting themselves, though, a lot of their customers like it. So, there you have it.

    I suspect they'll probably sell a bunch of them.

    The shockwave seems to be growing substantially in popularity.

    I do not particulary like porting on a shotgun; per my experience it is not as effective as it is on some rifles and creates a lot more noise for the shooter.

    But I am all for whatever gets more people out there shooting. Options are always a good thing.
