Default Sig P229 seems always pff to the right

Ive been shooting this P229 for about 3 months now. I've been taking my time with it to get really proficient with it. I feel like I've gotten to a point to where it shoots where I point it. But I'm now feeling that my sights are off, just about every shot is off to the right by about 2 inches.

The top photo is from last week. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th are from today.

Im sure I can get a smith to drift the sight a bit for me, but I'm still not sure that its not The shooter.

Any advice?

Unless you were aiming left of center on those bullseye hits I would have to say it is the shooter.

I had the same problem with my Sig P-226/229 when I first started shooting them. I had to readjust my trigger finger.

Check to see how much the bottom part of the trigger finger is dragging on the frame when squeezing trigger.

Judging from the above chart you are correct...

I pretty much center my finger on the middle of the trigger when I set my finger on it. I have to check that out on the next trip to the range.

Here's a question, as i am one, how does this apply to a left handed shooter?

the "pie" chart is transposed...........meaning that everything on the right is now on the left, and vice versa.

On the other hand if you have gotten to a point where you are very consistent with your groups, you actually could adjust the sight.

Ive been told to put the gun in a vise and get a baseline for the sights, the work on consistency of my grip before even looking to the chart for remedy.
