    Are you shooting with one eye closed or both eyes open? Are you right handed or left? Do you know how to determine your dominate eye? All of these may play a factor in where your rounds are going. With the rounds going left, are they in a tight group or just all over the paper?

    I think a competent instructor may be able to pick up on what you are doing right/wrong and help you improve your shooting, regardless of what gun is in your hand and it shouldn't take but a few minutes of observation.

    I shoot with one eye closed. I also shoot right handed and my dominate eye is my right eye. My groups are not tight groups they are all over the left side of the paper.

    As others have said, practice, practice, practice, then practice some more. Dry Firing will help, as long as you do correctly. If you practice a bad habit, all your doing is re-enforcing it. Get someone to help you resolve the shooting to the left issue, then practice what fixed the problem.

    Dry firing will help, also grip strengthening. Dry firing a Double Action Trigger will really help in my opinion.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    The EMP is an accurate gun. I'm dead on with it as well.
