i've been working on effects for the portal itself, which i just key out, but i still need the kind of burst of color from the gun and the trail.

Doesn't seem like there really is an actual "muzzle flash" on the portal gun. Looks like there's just a bright blob type of projectile with some kind of bluish, wispy, vapor trail and the gun's recoil with mechanical movement of the little hook-arms on the gun.
