OK Hawg,  I stand corrected.  Extractor not ejector.

...I have fired a few auto loaders but have never had any brass down my shirt.  ...

They only time I have experienced this is when firing the P08.  It ejects brass straight up and a little back.  Makes for a lively dance!

Since the mechanism is an "extractor" not an "ejector" then the P08 must extract the brass straight up and a little back.  Unless of course only a 1911 has an extractor and all others have ejectors.  Maybe Hawg will clear that up.
Anyway it must distract your attention for the next shot a little.

an extractr is the claw that pulls the case out of chamber, the ejecter is the post the case hits to be thrown from the extracter/gun.  mark

Yes but it's a little more to it than that. Proper extractor tension is essential for reliable feeding and ejection. Ejectors can be tuned somewhat to help with ejection but you can fiddle with the ejector all day long and if the extractor isn't right it never will work right. You can do a google search on tuning 1911 extractors and find a wealth of information on it and how to do it.

Thank you, I was wondering what to do.  I am so new to 1911s that I am happy just being able to load a magazine and get it to shoot.

The other day, I managed to shoot the thing on the end of the recoil spring the lentgh of our house.  Herself was not amused!

We've all done that. Its the recoil spring plug btw. Here's a pretty good vid of how everything fits together with the names of all the parts plus a slow motion vid of how it all works. Ignore the false info on Moros at the end.  ::) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnVyx3C6y48
