trojan 6.0 .38 super
my 17yr old son (tall/skinny) wants to start shooting in our local club
cips competition. i just bought a S&W 625 for us to start him on till he
learns the ropes b4 letting him move into the semi-auto..he has good
time behind the .22 semi auto and .45/.38 cowboy pistols.for the semi
auto competition I have settled on the sti trojan 6.0 with some extra
bells and whistles frm dawson precision.our local club only has 2 division.
revolver and semi-auto with only one restriction which is no optics sights.
what i wonder is would it be any advantage to magna-port the the
6" trojan. magnaport of course swears that no accuracy will be affected
and will see 30% decrease in percieced recoil. any thoughts appreciated.

1. I don't think a 6" .38 will have enough recoil to bother a 17 year old, and do not think Magnaporting worth the trouble and expense.
2. I don't know what "cips" competition is, but if you and he should branch out into other competition, barrel porting would severely limit your choices. It is not allowed in IDPA at all and it would require entering IPSC/USPSA in Open Division versus 28 shot scope sighted 7-port compensated .38 Supers.
3. Actually, a 6" 1911 pattern pistol will not fit the IDPA Box and would not be allowable there at all. A good excuse to buy a new gun when and if?
