You could both be right. Like I've stated, I'm fairly new with handguns. I shoot fairly well with my p226, but that one doesn't have much kick to it like the sp101.

I haven't let anyone else shoot it yet. I will have to research how to hold it correctly. It's a pretty small grip on the gun. I very well could be handling it incorrectly. Thanks for the input.

Just look at it. If there 2 screws. One on top. 1 on the side it's adjustable

Can't overemphasize this.

And what do you mean jtj that yours shoots the same? That you also have to compensate that severely?

I've shot at several distances with a variety of different types of ammunition, .38, .38 sp, and .357. All shoot the same consistently.

I'm considering a new front sight. I've been researching that a little bit.
I did not say it shoots the same. I said mine shoot to CENTER with the same hold. Shoots to point of aim. Read my post a little closer. It is your grip and trigger control that are the problem. Your wrist is breaking and allowing the barrel to rise to much on recoil.

Gotchya, I was replying and tryin to recall what you said. It does sound like my grip is the problem. I'm going to research how to hold this thing before I shoot next

It's a way to see if you are flinching or other unconcious action when pulling the trigger. Load up 4 chambers, spin the cylinder and shut it. NO PEEKING.

Fire through all 5 rounds. The empty chamber will surprise you and you'll see very easily if you have a bad habit developing.

I imagine I already do. I will do some dry firing tonight when I get home to check. I guess I never really thought about it.

I also read somewhere that the position of your trigger finger on the trigger affects your smoothness of the pull. I think that could be my problem

I never realized how complicated it was to pull a trigger until YouTube.

Just to be clear, this is not the same as what I suggested. Dry firing at home is an excellent way to practice your trigger pull, but you won't be able to catch yourself flinching until you're actually shooting live rounds with one empty chamber.

However, when you do dry fire at home try placing coin on the top of the barrel. Practice your full trigger pull this way without moving the coin.
