Kris, it could be a number of things. The first thing I would look at is how much trigger finger you used. Too little trigger finger causes the tip to push the gun to the left if you are shooting right hand, too much pulls the gun to the right. You could have too much trigger finger which can cause the wrist to flex in an attempt to help you pull the trigger all the way through, causing your shots to go right. It sounds like whatever you were doing was the same for all your shots, so whatever it is you are doing, you are consistent at it. Go back and pay close attention to the basics such as grip and stance, and when you get ready to shoot, where your trigger finger is on the trigger, and see if that doesn't help.

Good luck.

Thanks tony

My groups are really good it's the shots hitting left from the right side
I will play around with the trigger finger
My left hand barricade I was surprised with how well I shot and being left eye dominant thought that may have had something to do with it.

I'm a left hander and I have that issue when shooting right hand barricade. a tight group in the left 9/10 ring. I found the only relief is to hold the sight edge on the left side neck (50 yards, neck hold). They drop in for 10's/x's. I've also been told is could be putting too much pressure on the barricade with the support hand.

I was playing around indoors tonight practicing right hand (weak hand) barricade. I found if I held the gun in a standing 2 hand grip, and forced the back of the left hand against the side of the barricade, my groups would center up.

just a thought...

Kris,

Try an overlapping golf grip, interlock your two little
fingers and run your bottom hand last three knuckles flat
against the barricade. Worked for me.

Good Luck!!
