My search abilities are lacking tonight. I seem to remember reading that some have found that adjusting the grips on the P30/VP9 series can actually help change your target pattern. I have been working a lot on my grip and trigger pull but I still pattern a little to the left. From what I remember, there was a suggestion along the lines that a large panel for the left, medium back and medium or small right seemed to correct the problem somewhat for right handed shooters (or some other combination). Am I dreaming or is there a combination that helps with moving your pattern a little to the right?
I am right handed and have L for right, M for left, and M backstrap. This combo results in my strong hand shifting a bit to the left and the trigger hitting my trigger finger right on the pad where I want it.
I am also right handed and after much trial and error I've found M left, L right, and S back works for me. The key to accuracy is trigger control, pulling the trigger to break the shot without the sights moving off target until recoil makes them. The grip is the key to trigger control. This includes hand placement, trigger finger placement, grip pressure. The only movement you want to feel in your grip is your trigger finger pressing the trigger straight back. There is no way anyone can tell you which combination of grip panels will achieve this for you. Trial and error on your part will.
Thanks everyone. I’ll be going to the range and testing the different combinations as detailed here. And, of course, work on my grip and trigger pull still.
Quick question. Is it safe to try the different combinations without putting the pin back into the grip?
Old fart, with guns
I should try this, but my OCD requires that all grip panels are the same size. I don't think I could handle having one side bigger than the other!
