try shooting it off a rest.. i had the same problem shooting low it seemed like.. So then i shot it with the from of the gun on a rest and it was shooting dead on.. so that makes me KNOW it is all me.. And then i seen a video on here (not sure where) but shows the proper technique of holding your pistol and i tried it and it helped alot.. started making probably liek 4 in groups at 7 yards...I bought my first hand gun back in May thanks to George W's stimulus check. I got the XD 9mm service model in all black. I decided on an XD after looking at my friend's .45 I liked the safety features compared to other semi-auto's.
I put about 500 rounds through it and found it shoots low and left at 25 yards. I have to aim at the gap in the site between the left rear site and the font sight and then aim high. Is this normal? Is there any way to adjust it?
At my best, I was able to put 14 of 17 rounds on a paper plate at 25 yards. I could also hit light bulbs and beer bottles at the same distance - but not usually on the first shot (my shooting range was a ditch on a farm).
I recently bought a Crimson Trace grip laser for it and am anxious to sight it in. Although, when I look at the sights with the laser on, the dot falls in that same low and left place were I had to aim to shoot dead center. Any thoughts on this?
I've got a couple hundred more rounds to shoot up and see how well the laser does. Also contemplating getting my CCL. I know money shouldn't be a consideration, but I don't see myself carrying other than in a car or when deer hunting (which I could just carry open) so justifying the cost is weighing on my mind. What are your thoughts?
