    I've been shooting my Glock 19 and I shoot consistently low and to the left. How can I train myself on the correct technique to correct this problem?

    Dry fire. Practice, practice, practice trigger control.

    Get some dummy rounds or snap caps and intersperse them in your mags with live rounds. You will see what you are doing when you encounter a dummy round when you were expecting a live round.

    Your dry firing should be at least three to one as compared to live rounds. Even more if you are having difficulty.

    Lastly, there really is no substitute for competent instruction.

    feathers,

    Are you right handed?

    When you shoot low and left is this two handed shooting or one handed? Describe the method.

    How do you grip the gun? Does the gun fit in your hand so the muzzle aligns with the bones in your forarm? Is the grip feel to big or small for you?

    How do you press the trigger? What part of the finger touches the trigger? Do you press strait back quickly or take up the slack first?
