Just picked up a p320 carry and it seems to be shooting low and to the left so do I need to change the rear sight or have it moved a little. Or it could just be me not used to it yet

Since you are not sure, I would ask someone else to put a few rounds through it prior to making adjustments. If it is shooting the same with them from a rest, then think about sight adjustments.

Also try some different ammunition(s) particularly weight of bullets. There can be variables other than the sights.

Essayons!!!!!





And I agree with what he said, shoot it from a bench, using the combat sight picture (front sight covering center of target, not under it) and see if it is truly off and have a buddy confirm. If thats the case, drift the sight or have Sig replace one if its still shooting low.

I tend to do the same thing with mine--low and left. But as I practice more, I end up with 2 distinct groupings--one on target and one low and left. Hopefully the latter grouping will disappear in time.
If you're shooting low and left because of trigger control or flinching problem, compensating for it by adjusting the sights probably isn't the best solution. And since it's a new gun it probably makes sense to take some time eliminating those possible causes first.

I'm still shooting low/left. It's not my gun, it's me.

It's a classic trigger control and/or flinch anticipation problem with shooters. Here's how I diagnosed it for myself:

1. Have someone load your magazine for you. Have them put one snap cap (dummy round) somewhere in your magazine so you don't know where it is.
2. Load the magazine and start shooting at the target carefully and intentionally making sure you follow all your basics as you know them.
3. When you get to the snap cap/dummy round, obviously the gun won't go off, but notice your behavior on how you may/may not anticipate the round going off. Did you push it unconsciously down and left? If so, it's you who is making the gun shoot low-left.

Print out a few of the "Right hand shooters" correction targets. Shoot at a few and really concentrate on your grip and finger placement. This is what the wife and I had to do when we started shooting again or changed guns. Hope it helps.

Or, if you want a little color. there are these:

You can do this without help. Take a few snap caps and put them in your hand with live ammo and load the magazine without looking at it while you load it. You should do this at times anyway to simulate loading a magazine in total darkness. Insert magazine into gun without looking at it because the snap cap might be the top or second bullet and you will see it if you look at the magazine. Now your ready to shoot and find out if your flinching when you shoot.

I keep a set of 9mm, .40 and .45acp snap caps in my range bag.

I have the same problem with my p250. I have been trying to correct it but it does not seem to get better. I feel that the long reset and heavy pull on it causes my hand to tire too fast and involuntarily lose a proper grip upon it goes bang.
