It's got to be my left hand

Post by 99/100 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 8:45 pm

I'm right handed right eye dominant and USED to be able to shoot two handed pretty well. Somewhere I've started doing something where when I add in my left hand I start pushing rounds to 7 o'clock. I thought initially it was me and the XD sub compact (9mm) I carry due to it's size and recoil. Now doggone it, it happens with my 22/45 (with the grip mod) Anyone got a suggestion?

I'd bet on the right hand (finger)

Two usual causes
Increasing grip pressure while shooting (right hand)

or snatching the trigger

Actually, I usually blame either the gun or the ammo. Since I reload, it must be the gun. :lol:

Sometimes when a person adds a second hand to the pistol they tend to be more aggressive on the trigger.
