Glocks shooting left

Hello Mas,


Early on when I first started shooting Glocks I had problems with my shots shooting left. Through the range sessions over the years I seem to have corrected this problem but I don't know what I did to fix it.

I hear of it often and see people do it from time to time when I'm at the range. Is there a reason that this issue seems to come up more with Glocks than other pistols?

Also, do you have any advice for those that are experiencing this problem about how to correct it?

Thanks!

Any number of things can cause a handgun to be hitting away from point of aim. First, bench test it and/or have a shooter of known high skill try it. If it's shooting left in those circumstances too, it's probably the gun, and sight adjustment is in order.

Different shooter errors can cause a hit to the left. For the right handed shooter, it could be too little finger inside the trigger guard (and, for a southpaw shooter, too much finger). "Milking" the trigger will generally cause the shot to go to the non-dominant hand side, and down; it occurs because the other fingers are contracting in sympathy with the trigger finger, like milking a cow's udder. Quick fix: max force grasp with all fingers but the trigger finger.

best,
Mas
