Sounds like the manufacturer is primarily warning due to potential injuries to you if the bullet comes apart and shoots out the port, not so much damage to the gun.

I've not seen that warning before. If you were to shoot it, make sure you have good eye protection.

I have a 21C and recently acquired a non-ported barrel to use sometimes. Glockmeister fixed me up with that. If you decide to add a non-ported barrel to your collection, you could save the ammo for later.

Ported barrels have manufactured holes in the sides of the barrels that let the gases escape before the bullet reaches the end of the barrel. The "usual" is the non-ported barrel where the only opening is the muzzle of the barrel. A perceived value of the ported barrel is that the escaping gases can counteract the recoil effect and keep your aim steadier, I think. A negative is that the ported barrel shoots firelight and soot out the top of the barrel right in front of your eyes.

I suggest you use the terms in the search area of the forum to see conversations and to use Google to get explanations via Wikipedia, etc.
