Can anyone tell me why the ejector on a handgun is always on the right side of the slide?

I was just racking slide and noticed i'd have a better grip on my sr9 slide if I shot with my left hand and racked with my right...does that make sense?

More right handed people in the world than left handed so the manufacturers make the gun eject on the right side instead of the left.

i am right handed..just easier to get the four fingers on the left side of the slide...rather than cramping them all behind the ejector

i think i know what you are saying....
you are holding with your right (strong hand) racking w your left.
its going to be easier to rack with your right while holding with your left because you are working the gun with your strong hand. i do it all the time and im trying to break myself of it.
