    Please direct me to the older thread about the tendency some people noticed for the new Glocks to shoot left for a RH shooter.

    Or share your experience here.

    My search was apparently weak.

    It would also be helpful to see that "clock face" chart of shooter errors, indicating what is causing misses.

    thanks!

    Something I noticed when I first shot my G19 was the same thing, low and left, I decided to try diff ammo (124gr vs 115) with same results, I then decided to change my stance to the weaver stance instead of the one foot forward stance that I was using. I now shoot better than I was, so in my instance it was definitely the shooter and not the gun or ammo.

    You can Google the "clock face" you're speaking of.

    Mucho dry fire! Until your finger is tired or hurts a little. I missed the ENTIRE TARGET 14 of 15 rounds my first time out with my G19!!! :wow: Low & Left is the standard for new Glockers I found out. The above suggestions can make a difference.

    Here's the left handed version.....

    It's not much more confusing than the right handed version. :)

    I teach to do two things correctly instead of trying not to do all this stuff wrong.

    What he said. Lots of dry fire and one of those hand exerciser spring thingies to strength my grip is fixing the problem for me. It's a work in progress. I'm new to Glock and pistols in general.

    Sounds like you are pushing the trigger to the left when pulling the trigger. Put a little more finger on the trigger.

    This one works pretty well for me.

    Seriously...

    Shoot that pistol from a sitting position, with your wrists rested on a sandbag/rangebag/whatever, at the farthest distance you expect to use it. You will then have established its zero and how much, if any, sight movement is needed to correct it.

    I'd guess dry-firing is going to help you the most. I think that region often comes from over-anticipating the shot. You need a smooth motion. And it should just be the last joint of your finger on the trigger. A lot of people put too much finger in there, which hurts accuracy.

    But don't listen to me. Listen to this guy: http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/ayoob85.html

    (plenty of great youtube vids out there too)
