    Default Hit in the face by debris while firing?

    Hello, all. This is my first post, I bought a Beretta 92FS about 8 months ago and since then I have probably put 300-350 rounds through it. When firing it, I get hit in the face with debris. What could this be? One of the first times I took it out, debris hit me hard enough to draw blood. I contacted Beretta and they issued a call tag through my local firearms dealer (where I bought it) and when I got it back it said "completely devoid of lubrication." and added they found no problems with the gun. But sure enough, first time I took it out, about 10 rounds in, got hit in the face with more stuff. I also know as a fact that it was not devoid of lubrication when I sent it in. First thing I did when I got it was lubricated it. When I had problems, I took it back to the dealer and they took it apart, found fine brass dust inside. They completely cleaned and lubricated it right in front of me. So when I sent it in it was clean and lubricated. All sales are final at the local FFL of choice so I'm kinda screwed on the purchase. Now, I'm no expert but I've fired enough hand guns to know that that kind of behavior is not normal. It's not with every round or anything, only once every magazine or two. I own several other berettas and they don't have problems. Thoughts?

    If it makes any difference, it might be worth mentioning that it has never had problems feeding or ejecting whatsoever.

    This blow back occurs when you're shooting which manufacturer's ammunition?

    I get hit in the face when firing Remington ammo. So i tried using Wolff ammo thinking maybe my gun just doesn't like the ammo but it did the same thing.

    Where, exactly, is the debris blow back coming from? It should leave filth traces on the pistol.

    What is the debris? Powder? Brass? A combination?

    The remington box verbatim is remington umc 115 grain MC,
    the Wolf ammo is 115 grain copper FMJ steel case non-corrosive burden primed Both did it. Come to think of it I didn't clean it before changing ammo.

    What is this "debris" you are talking about? A shell casing?

    Are you right or left handed?

    How are you hold the Beretta when shooting? Are your arms extended or is the pistol close to your face or chest?

    I cant tell what the debris is that's hitting me in the face. It doesn't feel hot like powder does, it's a real sharp pinch. I'm guessing brass but could be a combination. As for the location, from the exterior, you can't see any. When I lock it open, there are two cutouts near where the ammunition feeds. The cutouts have brass shavings on them. Locked open, the two cutouts (one on either side) are dead center of where the ammo feeds, and are positioned forward of the extractor

    Check the fired brass. Is it bulged? Split?
