Just keep practicing finger placement and no slow squeezing as said above. I ordered a mako defense “knock off” red dot polymer mount to try on mine for long range shooting and hunting. If I like it enough I might get it milled or by a replacement slide that’s already milled for a red dot. It’s one of very few pistols I’ve shot that’s dead POA right out of the box. Never been a Glock fan till I rented a 20 last year. The rental 20 shot excellent. Never shot a 10mm before and the first four shots were all in one big 1” hole in the “x” at 18 yards. I got excited and pulled the 5th shot an inch left. It was enough to make me finally brake down and buy one a few weeks ago. Still not a big fan of no manual safety but I’ll get use to it. I have 8 pounds of green dot, 600 bullets, 8,000 large pistol primers, and a small rate flat box full of brass so I’ll get use to shooting it since I will have enough supplies to do so. I am Ordering a cast bullet hollow point mold and will be powder coating them as well. I added the second widest grip insert before I tried mine out. I have pretty large hands. The largest one fit my hand fine but I felt it taper down to the main grip. The size below it I didn’t feel the taper in my hand.

Well said Dulti. I actually carried a GLOCK on SORT/SWAT over the SIG I could have used. I much preferred the straight single action vs.DA/SA.

Shooting low/left is normal for many early into their Glock ownership experience. The grip angle is a little different and the Glock doesn't have a 1911 trigger, never has, never will. That said, shooting a Glock well isn't that hard, it just requires some dedication and practice. Limp wristing is common, but not as big an issue as some make it out to be. A death grip is not a requirement.
For a good productive grip, hold the firearm comfortably with your shooting hand, now grip it with the support hand. Too often shooters try to put a death grip on it with firing hand. As the hand wraps around the grip, it tends to twist the firearm to the left (or right for those who are lefties) and pull the nose down. By holding with the firing hand and gripping with the support hand, that left twist is countered and the firearm points as it should. The next culprit is trigger control. Too much finger and the left twist is back. Use the pad of your finger, pulling straight rearward in a smooth steady motion rather than trying to stack the trigger will give you much better results.

This thread should greatly benefit a new Glock shooter. About 13 different methods of gripping and shooting a striker fired handgun have been recommended. Surely after trying six or eleven methods the new shooter will find something that works for them. smile

it's just par for the course when you're on the internet. Sometimes cheap advice costs more than professional, paid for, experience and knowledge.

More than likely, someone will convince them it's the gun!

I thought Glocks were all supposed to be held sideways when you shoot them. That's how they do it on tv and in the movies. smile

There was a shop in Tulsa that had an old beater pistol. The took a set of sights and glued them on the side of the slide. Called them "Ghetto Sights". Hilarious!

Best advice for glock owners is to trade them in for HK's! smile

Happy Belated birthday!

I just recently started to appendix carry with my Walther. I am seeing the advantage [beeep] that the HK P30 brings to the table.

Keeping your thumb over the hammer while reholstering makes a lot of sense to me.
Good luck!

Well, its not a Glock problem, its me. A young guy that's in training for the Marshall dept was there today and I ask him to shoot my pistol. He put 10 rounds in a bulls eye the size of a 50 cent piece. I shot and while I had a decent group, it was low and left just like before. I'm gonna figure this out or go broke trying.
