OK - sorry it took so long but I finally made it back to the range. Ammo was Federal and Blazer 115 gr from sandbag rest @ 50 ft. I put the gun deeper in the V of my hand and the damn thing was center right. More adj w hand and I got my best group ever w Blazer Brass Ammo.

1911's are easier to shoot well but one can learn to adjust to striker fired pistols.

After about 1000 rounds I finally fixed my shooting left, all about the trigger control for me. From not hitting the target when shooting corner bulls to magnificent groups. I shot dead center with my other guns so I knew it wasn't sight picture, I swore it was the sights and was ready to send it back, nope, kept shooting, realized it was just me. Never had a gun out of the box that took so many rounds to get it right. Keep shooting!

all of my pistols shoot to the left because I shoot to the left...trigger and grip are the primary problems for me. The guns that shoot best for me are the ones with a combination of a light, crisp trigger....ruger mk II .22 is dead on...best trigger of my stock. My next fav's not neccessarily in this order are Browning HP, M&P competition, and GP 100....my worst, Beretta M9 and I'm having a little difficulty with my glock.

If you doubt the problem is you try some snap caps and mix em in you full mags, and if you are at the range with someone else have them mix em in so you don't know where they are.. Most of the time is anticipation of recoil or too much trigger finger. You will see your prob plain as day with a snap cap in there.

And practice more dry firing at home its great free training.
