Hello all/Responce to Daniel
Ron L here, = SERESURPLUS
I was looking at your post, about the Beretta and you did not state the Model, but I suspect it's a Model 92? Thats not really the issue, but I'd follow the sage advice of the others in the group who sudguested two things to check?
1. Get the Handgun to a Good "Gunsmith" (Check the Yellow Pages, or call a few Gunshops and see who they use?), let him check out the Gun itself, the Sites, the Scratch you were talking of, so that the handgun can be checked to see any Damage or sites bumped or anything amiss? They will check, then "TEST FIRE", to ensure all is well or needs repair?
2. Try and Rent another handgun with a simular grip? As Boris suguested, rolling th grip in ones hand or a few other improper grip techiques can cause the handgun to shoot low and ot the left consistantly! If it does the same with other handguns, while yours is being checked, you can bet it's not the handgun, it might be your grip, squueze or rolling thr grip? Not meant to be insulting, but as Boris and I've said, that happens with many folks trying a wide grip on a handgun, Heck, seen it happen on a revolver before? Try all that, then Please let us know how that came out, we'd love to hear the outcome?
