Only shot XDs 9mm twice but both time I notice I am shooting high and left. The range I am shooting at is uphill for the 12 - 15 yard target. Any chance this has something to do with my inaccuracy? I still hit the perp in the vital organ area but just curious if I am doing something wrong - is it the range or should I have someone who knows what they are doing adjust my site's? Have shot long guns all my life but this is first handgun. Thanks for anyone's help. I realize it might be that I just need more practice - only put 100 rounds downrange.

Love the gun tho.

Usually for a right handed shooter this means you are anticipating the recoil. Funny... most I hear of are low and left.

Welcome to the forum.
From what I have read you are pushing the gun with your palm and you need move your trigger finger over slightly. Try relaxing your right hand grip a little and holding little more with your left hand.
Also doing a dry fire watch if your trigger finger first joint is against the gun. It shouldn't be touching the gun. The flexing of finger when pulling trigger can cause the gun to move sideways if finger is against the side of gun.
