    In spring when I first got it I was shooting decently enough after a few trips to the range. But after 2 months off I'm worse than when I started.

    I think part of it is not practicing enough, but it also feels like i'm overthinking it now. I dont get it :hs:

    I was going to when I have some time and focus :o

    I've always shot a little low and left as well, though its much worse now. Does that indicate anything?

    Too much trigger input. Its the same problem I have with Glocks no matter how much I practiced with them. I dont have the problem with other guns, but for some reason, I could never get used to the Glock trigger no matter what was done to it and always had too much finger input causing low left shots.

    Need to work on pulling straight back with the trigger finger, only moving the first two joints and having the pad of the finger on the trigger.

    Should've gotten a Stallard Arms instead.

    This.

    Try and put the trigger closer to the tip of your finger. I normally have mine about 1/4 down the pad between tip and first knuckle.

    Also practice dry fire drills.

    Place a penny or empty case on the front sight and depress trigger until the hammer/pin drops without dropping the penny.

    arfcom jokes aside, I'm kind of proud that my xd is a little rough around the edges.

    I like the look of a decently used gun. It makes it look like it was use for its intended purpose.
