    So I am new to the whole polymer gun scene, in fact my XDm 4.5 9mm is the first poly gun I've ever shot. I used to not pull my shots. First trip to the range I thought it was the sights were off. This Friday and today I went back to the range and put 300 rounds through the gun. Each day I started off shooting left. I was pulling my steady hand (left hand) as I shot (still had awesome grouping just not bullseye). I think I am starting off expecting big recoil and then once I realize what I'm doing I can fix it. Hoping next week I can get past my bad start.

    Thanks for the chart but I have it already. My previous trigger platform was Sig Sauer traditional double action. As I said in my post I was pulling with my steady hand (left hand). I can fix it when I concentrate on keeping my left hand still and not pulling with my left hand. Its frustrating because I used to not do this.

    You shuold be able to just reverse it left to right and use it for left handed. So "breaking wrist up" & "breaking wrist down..." stay, "too little trigger finger" would be on the far right, "thumbing or too much trigger finger" on the far left etc...

    Is it just the first shot from each mag? Do you just let the trigger go to the reset point after the first shot or do you release it all of the way with each shot?

    What happens when you dry fire it? Are you able to keep it steady then or does the uzzle move?

    Honestly, I think you need to go back to basics. Shoot less, focus more. 300rds and you're still pulling your shots = you're ingraining bad habits into muscle memory. Focus on your grip, especially on your non-dominant hand.
