Compensated Handguns in the REAL WORLD
Want to buy a compensated gun? This is what they don't tell you.

They look cool, but are not only impractical, but also dangerous to the shooter and his surroundings:

  1. Wrist or hip shooting cannot be performed safely with the compensator. The handgun must be held at arm's length from the shooter.

  2. A compensated pistol must not be discharged in proximity to the shooter's eyes, legs, arms, clothing, or to bystanders.

  3. The exhaust ports vent high-pressure/high-velocity gas when the gun is fired and can damage property several feet away. Caution must be taken when shooting to avoid overhead objects that may be in the path of the exhaust port's blast (that includes curtains, walls, etc.).

  4. Use only fully jacketed ammunition. Shot cartridges, frangible ammunition, and some plated bullets can send hot shrapnel flying through the open ports.

  5. The compensated weapon may require heavier loads than usual to cycle reliably. The exhaust ports slow the velocity and decrease the foot-pounds of your rounds.

  6. The exhaust ports increase the noise level of shooting and pose a serious danger to hearing when shooting in a closed space without ear protection.

  7. You must never cycle the slide with your hands over the ports. The open ports must be treated like an extension of the business-end of the weapon. If the gun fires accidentally and your hand is over the ports, you risk serious injury.

  8. Competition shooters should be aware when shooting through props such as windows ports, culverts, tiers, etc. Tell your range officer that you are shooting a compensated weapon.

  9. The front site will accumulate heavy powder debris during shooting.

  10. The blast from the open ports relates a clear signature for the bad guy to tag you.

  11. The blast from the open ports hinders your secondary sight picture on succeeding rounds being fired.
