    PT111 G2 shooting low and left

    Hi, I took my gun and put 100 rounds through it yesterday for the first time. I'm shooting low and way left, like 4 inches in 7 yards. I feel like the trigger pull is inconsistent too, but I have a theory..

    Are you guys shooting with the pad of your finger? I shoot way left (unless I aim right). I think when I'm using the crook of my finger, I feel like the trigger is inconsistent. Maybe I'm not squeezing the trigger safety blade with my finger like this? I'll have to go back out to really play around with it.

    Experience level : have only had a S&W A22 that I fire a few hundred rounds per year, and some skeet shooting for fun.

    My wife and I are considering getting CCW this summer when we have time.

    many folks complain about shooting low and left with the G2......In most cases it has proved to be a shooter issue....You should use the pad of your finger. Using the crook i your knuckle tends to pull the gun left.......the pt111 g2 is a fine CCW... welcome to the forum!

    You are jerking the trigger...... Concentrate on the front sight, usuing the pad of your finger, and think eggshell for a trigger.

    It's not just you, but in addition to the above, you need to think about bringing the trigger straight back. Us righty's tend to push the trigger a little left as we pull.

    You are a right handed shooter who is anticipating the gun going off. Practice is your friend and patience is your mentor. Don't think about the gun going off and recoiling. Instead, practice taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly while you are pressing the trigger. The gun will fire and you won't be thinking about that. You will be thinking about exhaling slowly and the bullet will strike the point of aim.

    It's all trigger control. Practice keeping your finger straight from the second knuckle, pulling straight back, rather than curling your finger. Curling will send you low left.

    I carry a G2 as my EDC and have 2000+ rounds through mine. When I first started with it I too shot low and left with it. Don't blame the gun.

    Trigger finger discipline is the key to accuracy with any gun, but the trigger on the G2 exacerbates any lack of discipline.

    A right handed shooter shooting low and left is simply allowing the movement of the trigger to move the entire hand down and left (dipping). It's a simple problem, but hard to overcome without a lot of practice.

    My keys to accuracy are gripping the gun tightly with the three grip fingers, and focusing solely on the front site. This helps free up the trigger finger to work independently of the rest of the hand. Naturally, when you move the trigger, the other fingers want to move with it (closing a fist is natural, moving a trigger is not). Keeping a firm grip (along with plenty of dry fire practice) will help immensely.

    I can now ding my 8" steel target at 25 yards with my G2 over and over. Again, it's not the gun.

    Here's a great video -
