    This is pretty indicative of my shooting...any ideas why i'm pulling to the left? I'm right handed, maybe something in my grip technique?

    Slapping the trigger most likely.

    I'd practice lots and lots of dry firing. If you pull the trigger harder, you'll probably notice that your gun will move off target...in my case, it goes to the left. Concentrate on pulling the trigger very slowly and consistently.

    Also, try shooting with the tip of your finger, not at the joint. That requires fewer muscles and is easier to pull straight back.

    My $0.02... I'm sure some of the more experienced posters here can help better.

    i thought about it, though i'm reasonably sure its me. The gun is a year old Sig 220 (guess i should i mentioned that in the first post) and I'm pretty new to pistols.
     
  5. If you trust the targets like this (and you shoot right handed):

    Then it's likely you are doing this:

    I'm think i'm anticipating recoil, what does "too little trigger finger" mean?
     
  8. I think it means that you are using just the tip of your finger. Not sure though.

    Grip, stance, portion of finger on the trigger, breathing...None of that matters. Pull your trigger straight to the rear while focusing on the top edge of your front sight.

    Mix some dummy rounds in your magazine to see what your front sight is doing while it should be relatively still during the trigger press. When the gun goes click instead of bang if your front sight moves at all it was you.
