Um...you're shooting a GLOCK

Preferred course of corrective action would be to transition to an XD or better yet, a 1911.

Following advice above should remedy the situation

What are you focusing on ? Are you shooting with 1 eye or both open ? With handguns your focus point should be your front site then square it with your rear site with equal space on both sides of notch. Then when you place your site on target your site picture should be at 6 o clock. Plus how your holding the weapon as far as your natural point of aim and squeezing the trigger all play a roll. There's plenty of how to videos on u tube to show you the basics.
