    How important is weak or strong ejection and direction pattern for you?

    It just needs to get out of the way.

    Straight down at my feet.

    Or into my hand if I’m just plinking.

    I’ve noticed ejection distance can depend partly on my concentration; ie how hard I grip it.

    My PPQ spits 'em about 5 yards to the right and just behind my shoulder. Very consistent too. I can set a bucket on the ground and catch about 75%. The rest are close by.

    Never pay any attention. As long as it's clearing the action I don't care where it goes after that.

    As long as it’s not stovepiping or hitting me in the face, I couldn’t care less.

    Never gave it much thought except for one pistol I had that fling spent brass in my face.

    I reload brass for my M1 Garand so I pick it up. When lying prone and shooting it leaves 8 individual piles of brass from 1:00 to 7:00. Each brass flings to a different location depending on where in the magazine it’s located. Kind of funny. Would have never noticed it if I didn’t pick brass up to reload.

    Depends on the ammo. Full power stuff gets thrown pretty far but light loads make it 5 feet.

    My Smith and Wesson model 28 Highway Patrolman ejects all 6 wherever I want them.

    I used to be that way too until I had one that would send hot brass back at my face. Now I pay attention to ejection.

    Springfield Armory XDM 10mm. Threw it into the underbrush at the side of the range berm. Only recovered 15% of the brass. Two issues remained, one I wanted to reload for more versatility and commercial 10mm is stupidly expensive and two, although the gun was reliable, didn't develop any love for it. Sold it to a local, friendly gunshop. Don

    Over the past 35 years I have owned and shot MANY guns... I have never once paid any attention to how far away the brass was being ejected.

    I find hulls about four to ten feet away usually about 4 o'clock.

    You act as if keeping track of ejection pattern is like checking your oil. One is preventative maintenance, the other is absolutely unnecessary. Unless your pistol is ejecting problematically, why would you care if it's at 2 o'clock vs. 4, or 5ft vs. 10?
