Practice. Practice. Practice.

"Guns are more accurate than we are". Guns are inherently accurate, but when actually firing them they are only as accurate as the shooter.

Simply put, practice makes perfect .

on a Gen4 19 I'd get a Gen 3 or Lone Wolf Extractor. Glock has had problems with this on the Gen4 19's, and from what I know, only on the 19's. It's a new extractor and for some reason, not working so well on the 19. They are like $8 so not expensive or hard to swap with the right instruction and a 3/32 punch or glock tool.

Otherwise, nothing, but practice, and a lot of 9mm ammo!

What distance are you shooting? What ammo are you using? What do your targets look like now?

I use FMJ not sure what grain. I shoot at human silhouette on the target vital organ are shown I like to see the damage that could be done I use a standard target to just circles leading to a black top to mark the center. I shoot at about 25m and can normally make a group about a 2.5" spread what can I do technique wise

Borrow a Ransom or other handgun rest (many clubs and ranges have them to borrow or rent), lock the Glock in, fire 4 or 5 five-shot groups. Average these groups together for the gun's "Innate Accuracy" which is how accurate the gun is without human interference.

The best bet is to start practicing until your accuracy approaches that of your "Innate Accuracy" figures. At that point, any work that will make the trigger and action smoother will help improve your accuracy as well as stepping up to hammer-forged, cryogenic-frozen match barrels fitted to the gun.
