    Title says it.

    G19 Gen4, hitting High-left...

    Actually, grouping is tight.....dug a nice, small hole in the dirt beside the soda can at 20 yards. (Yeah, I know it's a long way. But it makes problems easier to diagnose.)

    This didn't help, same results with a bench rest and another shooter.

    Maybe the sights? Or the pistol.. Maybe I've lost my touch. :dunno:

    Been shooting a long time, never had this problem outta any Glock.

    It could be that you're flinching. Try not to anticipate or predict the exact moment of the weapon firing.

    If that doesn't work you might be changing the grip pressure while you're squeezing the trigger.

    This is my issue, except high left for a lefty.

    Same scenario, years of shooting (other platforms).

    I can overcome it with a great deal of focus.

    Get a paper target....like a 25 yard bullseye target (B8), use a six o'clock hold (bottom edge of the black), mix a few dummy rounds into a couple different mags of live ammo (so you won't know when you'll hit the dummy rounds), and shoot your best group.

    When you hit the dummy rounds expecting a loud bang, you will be able to see if you are moving the gun high and left when you pull the trigger....or if you aren't.

    Same answer I gave last time; and almost identical to what Butch is suggesting now.
