    Have run about 350 rounds through my new M&P 9 mm. Despite distance to target, the great majority of my shots go left and low. I have not had this problem with other handguns. Any thoughts or suggestions?
    Thank you.

    Pay attention to your trigger pull. Keep practicing.

    If someone has the handgun shooting correction chart this would be a good place to post it.

    Carry those to the range frequently, especially when breaking in a new gun. They really help if you can be patient and are willing to work at it. I am always amazed at how many people go to the range, pop off a box or two, don't hit the broadside of a barn, and leave. It's fun, but I wonder if they really accomplished anything.

    BTW - I am assuming you are right handed. I am left, but that is a very common pattern when learning a new gun. It is most likely a trigger finger issue. Concentrate on pulling the trigger straight back into you and not the weapon. Maybe that will help.

    I had the same problem when I first got my m&p 45. It was the first safe action trigger I have ever owned. Once I started focusing on breaking the trigger it all went away.
