Shoot it from a vise, or at least a very solid rest. Don't spend money on "improvements" until you know what's going on. Choose mainstream brass new factory ammo.

My suggestion is to dry fire, dry fire, dry fire. Get some Snap Caps or the like and learn the trigger break and reset. If you are shooting from a full trigger pull every time it will go left. Like it was mentioned earlier, use the short reset. Once you get this down, you groups and accuracy will improve.
Good luck and keep us informed.

Had lots and lots of Glocks...some shoot left - some shoot to the sights. My advice is to send this one down the road and get another one. I've sent the ones that shoot to the left back to the factory and they just send it back to me with a target shot by one of there service people with all the holes in the center of the bull and say it's OK. I take it out and it still shoots leaves my house for parts unknown. I take my other Glocks along and they shoot fine. Don't waste your time trying to "fix" it, just get another. I know it will be touchy because it was a present, but when you get one that shoots to the sights - keep it! I currently have only a half dozen or so, but they all shoot to the sights and did from the beginning. 9's, .40's and .45's - the caliber doesn't seem to make a difference. When I was shooting the Gunny Challenge in Conyers, GA, a few years back, the GSSF guys brought 3 guns for us to use, as always, and one of them shot left (they all had terrible triggers and didn't group - they patterned). No matter which matchmeister used it, it shot so far off it made all of us who used it look like amateurs. Even if you practice, dry fire, use the excellent charts that have been posted which explain why shots are off target, some Glocks shoot left. Best to say, "get thee from me," and try another one. You will find one that shoots to the sights!
