    Molli welcome to the forum.
    I am curious how you are holding your LC9S.

    Welcome to R/T!

    My LC9s ejects spent brass about 15 feet, from 3:00 to 5:00 position. Haven't heard of brass coming straight back from one before. What ammo were you using?

    Only did one time. Have shot 100 rds or since with no issues. Ruger suggested not using reloads.

    Well, glad you're not injured. Hope it doesn't happen again. And thanks for sharing, your story is a good reminder for us all to wear eye protection at the range.

    The reason I asked how you held the gun was because perhaps your hold wasn't that tight and the gun had more muzzle flip than usual. This could have caused the ejector port to be towards your face. Just questioning is all.

    They are very thin, less than 1 inch.
