Or is this the way to go ??

Rule out bad habits, then correct the sights to point of aim.

Adopt a thumbs forward, high grip, with isosceles combat stance. Head down, both arms at full length. Without a gun, in this stance, have someone smack the front of your knuckles-- if your body moves, change your upper body lean-- hunker down.
Leave the movie stance for acting.

Dry fire trigger/grip/stance/headposition practice, assume your firing stance (not just sitting around- that comes later) when the striker fires, watch what the muzzle does, the muzzle should not move..any.

Tips: take slack out of the trigger, before commuting to the full trigger pressure. On follow up shots, do not let the trigger back to base, let out only until after the click reset.

After about 2000 rounds and 2 weeks of dryfire with muzzle control, if your shots group in a certain area, then move the sights.

May also be left eye dominate & shoot right handed. In this case you either can move the gun left in your stance or slightly tilt the gun left. You can also adjust yoru rear sigth to compensate. However as said you need to eliminate your fundamentals before touching the sights.
