No, I always leave the ejection port unblocked. I do however do my best to angle the gun in such a way as to have the round eject somewhat into the desired direction so it doesn't "escape."

I have the grip in my right hand, I roll the pistol over upside down, grab the slide with my left hand, palm up and pull the slide back.  The round falls in my hand not the dirt.

Never thought about the slide slipping out of my grip and catching the bullet just right between the lip of the chamber and the slide and setting it off.
That’s how I️ do it as well. Actually that’s how MOST pistol actions shooters do it. The other way is the taking the slide, flip your pistol, and catch the live round. That’s the Hollywood way.

High primer on a reloaded round i assume. Hard to imagine the edge of the ejection port hitting with enough force to set it off in the situation described in the article, but who knows.

Something had to hit the primer. Bad deal.
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

I do not have (and never have) anything over the ejection port when unloading.
