I want to get a Taurus track 44mag 4 inch barrel to carry while camping and hiking. But i am concerned about how loud this gun will be because of the ported barrel sense i will be carrying it i can foresee having to use it with out hearing protection can anyone tell me how much louder it is than a non ported 44mag of the same barrel length.

My friend has one it is noticeably louder than my 4inch barrel model 29 but not a huge amount . What the porting does do is make a very large and cool fireball at night lol .

I have the 2.5" titanium in 41 magnum, very loud, lots of flash. I think in these guns we're talking about "really loud" and "really, really loud" - the ported is "really, really loud". I think if you "have to use it" you probably won't notice the difference.

If you're gonna shoot it because you're being mauled by a bear, who cares if its loud? Wear ears when you're practicing.
