Are you using the "pumpkin on a post" method, or a combat style, front sight on the target sight picture? Glocks tend to be set up for the latter.

low and left is common for first time Glock shooters. The problem corrects itself around 1k rounds. Nice gun!

This is actually my fifth Glock. I had my G17 shot similar at first, but as you said it did go away. I had not had it happen since with any of the others in my collection. This one seems like a more exaggerated low left than the 17 was. I'm going today to put another 300 round thought it, I'll see what happens.

The fairly long reach of the trigger and the thick frame of a Glock can cause the trigger finger to push the gun. A common correction taught by my PD and several schools I've attended is to press fairly hard against the dust cover area of the frame with the support hand thumb; or if your fingers are longer, hook the trigger deeper to compensate.
