Not sure what Jack's reason is, but I prefer them because I police up my shells anyway. With ejectors I'm picking them up off the ground which is a PITA (or more correctly, back).

It's not a big deal to me, but I prefer ejectors because they facilitate the shoot-one, load-one technique on double rifles. Many times with double rifles you're reloading while on the move.

On the clays guns, I prefer ejectors if only so that I can do the cool catch-the-ejected-hulls thing.

On a field shotgun I would probably prefer extractors.

Exactly. Eyes and attention are on where the game fell (hopefully) and the dog.

A winged pheasant can run a long way and hide after dropping. Or, if you're in brushy areas it my be hard to find even when you watch where it fell.

I hate seeing spent shells littering the ground. I always think some slob has been there so I pick them up. Also, when I hunt with my brother-in-law I always give my spent shells to him as he reloads.

Krieghoff has achieved the impossible.

Krieghoff built a rifle uglier than the K-80:

Cool. Am I seeing correctly that it has 7 locking lugs on a fully rotating bolt?

I'd like to see it in person.

Hate the name though. Semprio. Sounds/looks like Sanrio. Where's the Hello Kitty?

I love the lines of the K-20. It's no brute like the K-80, but it's not some girly little toy either.
