Thats not bad shooting at all; you are low because you are anticipating the recoil.
Do some dry firing excercise at home, (the more the better) and next range trip flip that target backwards and just put one dot in the center; aim for that. Do that for the next few range trips and once in a while after. That should cure the problem.

Using the distal joint crease (that joint closest to the nail) as your trigger contact point is a common technique, not a "bad habit". It's argued, by those much more knowledgable & skilled than I, that using the distal crease provides a more immediate, consistant trigger pull. In general, your index finger "pad" can be anywhere along a .25" long arch from tip to center. The distal crease is a smaller, more-repeatable, concentration-free location. Either way is fine. For practical (SD) shooting, the crease is (to me) a better bet. Sometimes longer distances provoke more shooter attention, resulting in better accuracy. Looks to me like you've got everything centered in < 6". Fine shootin' in my book.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

Actually, I'd argue this is more of a follow through issue. People tend to shoot low as the muzzle dips when they look up to see their hits before finishing the shot. Since it is more difficult to see hits at distance, there is less inspiration to look for them. Maintain concentration on the front sight by getting an additional sight picture and only when the shot has finished should you check results.
