    Good, keep doing that though as it is an easy one to slip back into. Your problem appears to be your trigger control. Are you practicing trigger reset in your academy. You want to pull the trigger far enough back that it resets the sear but not so far back that it bottoms out on the frame. Practice dry firing with somebody else working the slide for you. ****at home, not at the range unless the RM says you can do it***** Work on your trigger and it will go a long way towards getting your hits in the X ring.

When you get to the dummy and you flinch to the right you'll know that is your main problem. Try shooting 22's for a while to work on your trigger control. Recoil is mostly a state of mind. I've seen people flinch more w/ a 9mm than they do w/ a 357mag.

    I joined the group, very informative!

    As Keith suggested, it seems to be a problem with my grip and/or my anticipation of recoil. I'll keep an eye out for this next range day!

    I think the problem may be as simple as putting your trigger finger in too far. Try using just the pad of you finger, about 1/2 way to the first joint.

    started a topic Advice on shot placement needed.

    Advice on shot placement needed.

    I'm a left handed shooter, Sig P226 .40.

    Just got back from the range a few minutes ago and while all my shots were in the vacinity of where I wanted them to go, they all seemed to drift to the right a bit.

    All the head shots are on the right side of the head (as we are looking at it) and all the body shots are on the right side of the body.

    I can email a photo if anyone requests it.

    Someone told me that my right hand was pulling my left hand over, but I was doing my best to insure that my right hand was only there to stabilize my left arm.
