Any draw backs to having a 2in .38spl magna ported?

It's going to be a nightstand gun for my mother.

Not a good idea for mom, IMO. Good sized night flash & can easily burn her were she to shoot it too close to her body.

Stick with a standard snubbie (steel) & use reduced recoil loads, IMO. Better grips too.

Have you shot a manga ported snubbie at night?

If your mom sleeps with ear plugs and sunglasses its a good idea. If not, buy a 4" gun and skip the port job.

She's already going deaf so no worries there. I considered the flash since if heard the same thing said about ported glocks which is why I never got one.

The issue I run into is she is left eye dominat so will shoot left handed. So my thought was that or a break action 22. I don't expect tier 1 accuracy from he. More like holes in the wall and a scared perp.

But I want to find something as lefty friend as possible and these are the 2 options I came up with since I'm also a lefty and have a southpaw and H&R 999

I would say get a 3 or 4 inch K frame sized revolver.   38 Special doesnt need porting.

Mag-Na-Port works best on Magnums.    Had a Ruger Super Blackhawk ported and recoil was like a 357 Magnum.
