    Default Help I’m at the range right now.

    I have a p30sk. Before I drift my sight I want comments on what else might be causing me to shoot consistently to the left. I attached a photo of my target.

    Stance, grip, trigger control and eyes could all be a factor and usually are.

    looks like your jerking the trigger to me.

    try going slower and making smooth and controlled trigger pulls.

    Thanks. I’m pretty consistent in the spot I hit.

    Trigger finger placement is a possibility. Ensure that the center of the trigger finger is over the center of the trigger itself. Cover the Non-Dominate eye with tissue while shooting to eliminate that possibility as well. Failing those options feel free to drift the sight.

    Doesn't look like the typical jerking of the trigger to me, more like pushing the trigger with the trigger finger while it's not (if right handed only) fully over the center of the trigger. Jerking typically is downward BTW.

    Eye dominance can sometimes be altered by glasses (Prisms) or obscuring the vision of the dominate eye by turning of the head right or left.

    Check to ensure that the front and rear sights are "Centered" on the slide. I've seen where they were not straight from the factory.

    You could aiming at the Green Dot???

    Best of luck.

    You might try shooting at a moderate range (5 yards) and from a supported rest. This should give you more insight as to whether it is you or the sights.

    I recently started shooting a P30L v1 and had the same issue—reasonable groups but shooting consistently to the left. Before drifting the sights, I strongly considered the probability that it was an issue with my trigger finger. I don't normally have the left-shooting problem with other pistols, but I also noted that this trigger breaks noticeably farther back than the other HK currently in my inventory. Sure enough, concentrating on careful trigger finger placement and pulling straight back has walked the groups over to be more centered. Before and after samples attached (6 o'clock POA—at the triangle)...

    That's to little trigger finger if you are right handed. Do a google search for "shooting correction target". It will give you a better insight as to what is causing the issue. You don't need to drift the sights.

    Your sight very well may need to be drifted. I have a USPc that was way off from the factory.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
