    Default Left and Slightly Low

    I went to the range last week and a lot of my shots with my 9mm and 45 were left and slightly low of target. One issue I have is that I shoot right handed, but I am left eye dominate.

    Any recommendations?
    Sometimes you have to pick the gun up to put the Gun down.

    There are several charts on the web that give some insight when you're left/right, high/low, etc.

    Put the bullets in the target right and a little higher. Sorry I couldn’t resist. It’s your grip. You need to loosen your grip and position your finger pad on the trigger.

    Practice dry-firing at a spot on a wall. When the front sight remains on the spot immediately after hammer fall, you'll have "Arrived". Working on "grip" (its effects), trigger "press" and sight follow-thru will get you there.

    Tip: In case you are not familiar with the term, "breaking your wrist" means relaxing or tightening your wrist and forearm just before pressing the trigger.

    Not everyone can, i am one of those people. I also shoot with either eye and if i pull up a pistol to aim one eye automatically closes but it's not always the same eye. Strange i know. I have slightly better eyesight in my right eye so if i think about it i try to use that eye. I find no difference with using either eye except for the slight eyesight difference.
