Spent some time this past week at the range for my second time since buying the PT 111 G2. I still love the look and feel of the gun. I didn't have real targets first time out, but this time I did. Seems the gun shoots consistently low unless I line up the sites to cover the intended target rather than to sit just under it. I could just get used to this, or more likely I will adjust the sights next time I go out. BTW, put 124 rounds through this last time out. Was shooting 115 gr FMJ. This likely to be different than hollow points?

It is more likely to be 'right on' when you use 124gr. I've been using 115gr FMJs at 21' and consistently am low or low/left, mainly due to trigger squeez or pull issue. Just lack of pratice. At the prices for ammo, no matter FMJ 115gr. 50 round box, HP is the same price for 20. So, I 'might' try one mag of HP just for the education but ammo goes quickly at the range. Kinda like gas, the faster you drive the quicker you have to refill.

For a while, HP was all I could get, and I had to have something to shoot in my new gun. Lucked up on some FMJ at a couple of different stores, so I'm currently sitting on my small stash.

Yup, shoots low or low-left, sounds familiar. I think I read somewhere that 124gr is the design center. Anyway I always have to hold high.

124gr is the standard nato load, where as 115gr is the norm for civilian or hp rounds, or so I've read. I too had/have the low left problem, but have decided it's my hold. I have a tendency to hold right shooting arm straight out, with my left supporting arm being lower and less stiff, instead of holding both arms straight out. I just noticed this the other day while practicing drawing and dry firing. I also am left eye dominant and I think that's why I got into this bad habit. I've got less than a year's experience with handguns, and my first was a semi auto .22. I'm extremely accurate with it, but of course perceived and actual recoil are much less! All of this is speculation, as I've yet to make it to the range to verify my thoughts.

The US M882 NATO :happy:spec'd 9mm ammo I have on hand was made by Winchester Olin in 2009.

It sports a 115 gr. FMJ bullet that averages 1,205 FPS out of the 5" barreled M-92 fired over a "Chrony" brand chronograph.
