Ok, I am going to get slammed for this one but I just got an xd40 service model. I am having some accuacy problems. I swear that I am not a novice shooter but I am willing to admit that it could be me and I just suck at shooting this gun. I just want to know if anyone else is having these problems. Please let me know. The gun seems to be shooting low(very low)

How far are you shooting from? Are you useing a bench?

I too am a new XD-40T owner and last wed was the 1st time I was able to shoot it. EVERYTHING was low and left from about 10 feet. I am going out this weekend and going to use a rest and see if it is me (most likely) or the gun.

So a question for all, are the stock sights adjustable if I find it's 1/2 me and 1/2 the gun?

It's probably you. :)

Get someone else to shoot it, see how they do.

It's probably you. When I changed over from a S&W 9mm to my new XD it took me a few weeks to get used to the grip and trigger. I was shooting low and to the right. I'm a lefty so that would be low and to the left for right handed. Too much trigger squeeze and too hard of a grip.

Work on your grip at home, and also dry fire it while working on your grip. Strive for a slow and constant trigger pull. You can also check your grip in the mirror. Always, more practice at the range will increase your accuracy.
