at first i thought it might have been me, but i switched over to shooting my 9mm and i started hitting where i was aiming. but it could be me, as the gun is still new to me. i haven't shot a 40 in about two years, and maybe i need to compare the recoil to my 45 instead of the 9mm.

Sounds like you may be unconsciously fighting the recoil before it hits, expecting a larger recoil than you are actually receiving.

That may be my only complaint about the gun. If I'm not careful, I can have 3 rounds down range before I know it.
