gun shooting to the left

This may sound simple but I have gotten different responses when asked......imy HP is shooting to the left, do I drift the rear to the left also?

Hello. If you're sure the gun's hitting to the left, the rear sight is moved to the right.

My new MK III seems to be shooting a tad low and to the right. Gonna put 500-1000 rds through before I mess with the sights.

First time shooting a .45 all the shots went low and to the left. Think that was because of anticipating recoil or jerking the trigger. Have since corrected myself, and shooting 9mm MKIII there's alot less tendency to anticipate recoil.

Well, I've had the gun 20 years but I'll give it another shot...actually, I do tend to shoot the left also...but two other guys had the same was a DX I guess it needs a slight tap to the right...

I have found two reasons that cause me to shoot to the left. If it is to the left and down I am flinching, anticipating recoil. But I have to be careful and pull the trigger straight back, because I have a tendancy to pull (push) the trigger to my left. I find I do this more when pulling the trigger with my first joint instead of my finger pad.
