I'll keep repeating this... stiff recoil spring, heavy slide, new gun...
Was it 115 grain Wal-Mart ammo? Did the other brass fly 5-10 feet to the right, or did some just flop out at your feet?
I've had this happen with the more "heavy duty" 9's I've owned. The guns are meant to work reliably with ALL flavors of 9mm, including +P and NATO and less hot ammo types may not work right out of the box.
If you still have the problem after you've broken it in, then I'd get worried.
