Hi im new at paintball and i wanna now if too much porting is bad. Because someone told me that if there is too much porting that you will loose like 20 feet from your shot. Is this true or is this person wrong.

It can make the efficiency of the marker worse if the porting exceeds past a certain point in the barrel.

After the first 8in. - 10in. in a barrel, once a paintball is fired, the paintball's velocity reaches a high point, and begins to slow down after this point. If the porting goes past this point from the tip of the barrel, this means that the gas propelling the ball will be released early, and thus causing the paintball not being able to reach it's maximum velocity in the barrel, which in the end means that you need to turn your velocity up.
