    If you're consistent its a good start. You always want to rule out human error before messing with sights.

    Sounds like you could be jerking the trigger, always use a consistant squeeze, the gun going off should be a surprise everytime. Whenever you jerk the trigger,you are also changing the position of the muzzle

    You should just be using the pad of your finger anyways. It'll help out in the future but not for what the problem is now
