What sight picture are you using? (Dead center hold, or 6 o'clock?). What ammo? How many rounds have you put down range? How do you shoot with other platforms?

The is not meant as an insult, but f you are newer to shooting, or newer to that particular handgun, anticipating recoil is one of the biggest factors in driving rounds low. Gripping too tight or using toouch trigger finger or too little trigger finger inside the trigger guard can drive the gun to the left. (Don't know if you are right or left handed).

All 250 rounds have been 124 JHP. started with a 6 o'clock hold then moved to a 12 o'clock hold brought POI up a bit. I'm sure it is all on me, but was curious on others input. Using a rest on next range visit and going to try 147 grain also.

Right handed shooter so left shows too little trigger finger which I will also correct on my next time out.

Switching to the 147 gr. is probably a good move. While you are shooting make sure that you "follow through"- the sight picture when you have discharged your pistol should be as close to your aiming picture as possible.
When you squeeze the trigger, start with the trigger finger center of pad on the trigger amd move it straight back into your arm. If your arm and wrist are aligned as they should be this should help.

According to the 10-8 website, some 9L's do shoot low. They offer a .160" tall front sight that may help you out.

Shooting low and to the left can also be a result of tightening your support hand fingers while pressing the trigger (for right hand shooter). Many people tend to tighten their grip while pressing the trigger. Get your grip set prior to the shot then move only your trigger finger.
