I consistently shoot between 7 and 9 o'clock with all my handguns. The heavier the round, the worse it gets. With my mk111 it is hardly noticable however with the springfield armory 1911 I just got its so bad sometimes I am missing a notebook size sheet of paper from 30 feet. According to a target I found from this site I am using 'to little trigger finger' and or 'tightening fingers' and possibly even 'jerking/slapping the trigger'.

With my glock 19 (which I have the most experience shooting) I generally shoot about 3 inches left of bullseye at 30 feet. However with the 1911 I just got we're talking 4-6 inches left and 3-4 inches low. Some of that I attribute to stepping up the caliber and a new style of gun. But its become prevelant that this is a reocurring problem that I am experiencing with ALL my handguns.

Any help as to how I can get this corrected would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the quick replies gentlemen. :D

I am pretty sure that I am flinching, which would also explain why it gets worse the bigger the gun I shoot. Ill have to work on what you suggested SGT-MILLER and see if that helps.

Haven't had any problems with the 1911. Got it yesterday, put 50 rounds of cheap pmc brass through it yesterday, and another 100 rounds of WWB today, not a single problem of any kind with the exception of not being able to shoot it worth a damn. :eek:
