Sorry didn't read all the messages, so forgive me if its already been mentioned.

Buy a cheap laser from Ebay ($15)
Strap it on.
Pick a spot on the wall.
Dry fire 3000 times, rinse and repeat.

If you jerking or pushing or pulling or squeezing or sneezing. You will see it immediately.

A lot of people including first time handgun owners have the wrong impression and perception of what accuracy really is... The G21 performs well out of the box and in a controlled environment it tested well at Glock (your casings that should have come with it are your proof unless you live in a state like NY that takes them for FBI referencing instead of giving them to the consumer) However, accuracy lies within the operator, it's how you handle the weapon and your performance that makes a weapon accurate or not... Basically I'm saying if you think it's not accurate then it's due to operator error, I suggest you do what others have mentioned and let others that are familiar with the G21 try shooting it and you'll see exactly what we all mean... Good luck and enjoy your shooting cause you have a good weapon, don't be discouraged

As previously advised, get some lessons and more practice. I don't currently own a Glock but have shot just about every commercially available semi auto on the market and the only NIB pistol I've every tried that did not hit POA was a buddies HK USP. Everyone shot a consistent low left with this gun and a simple sight adjustment solved the problem.
A gun that hits "everywhere" is a sure sign of operator error.

a Glock trigger with 3000 rounds or dryfires through it feels WAY different, and better than a factory fresh one....

Cheapest practice ammo available, also.

When I first began shooting pistols, a guy I grew up with, who had been a firearms instructor at Division Schools while he was in the Marine Corps, told me to "snap in (dry fire) at home in your living room, until your family thinks you're a stone cold nut."

It turned out to be solid advice.

That dog's about to turn around and say, "Watch where you put that finger!" Otherwise, good technique!
