Good Morning Everyone.
Just wanted to start off by saying GREAT SITE! Its nice to see so many people with the same intrests as I have. I have 4 daughters 2 grand daughters and fianally a 18mth old grandson. I have been hunting and fishing all my life. I have just really gotten into hand guns although I own a few mostly inherited through family. I just received my CWP about a month ago. I own a 22,32,380,38spl, and just purchased a Springfield 1911 A1 S/S. I shoot all the other just fine. I am having a problem with the 45. Great groups at 10-12 yrds just low and to the left. Came with fixed sights so Im thinking its me and not the gun.Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated as ammo is not cheap.

Do some dry fire with the Springer. It sounds like you are anticipating the recoil and pushing down. Lots of dry fire will quickly eliminate that.

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Welcome. Play any golf at Augusta? I bet it's a bit pricey.
I had the same problem shooting left. It was explained to me that if the right hand has too much tension and when the muscles contract as you pull the trigger it causes a movement to the left. The correction was to become more left hand dominate and have both hands participate equally in the control of the recoil. Hopes this helps.

Glad you like the place, I just vacuumed!
I have the same problem with my 9x19's - I'm pushing low & left. I've been trying different finger placement for my trigger pulls, just haven't got 'er dialed in yet. I'll let you know if I come up with a brainstormer.

And yes, when shooting low and left...you're anticipating the recoil...very natural and common for right handed shooters.
As someone earlier mentioned...do a lot of dry firing (making sure the gun is unloaded!!).
And I'd buy a set of snap caps (dummy rounds)...better for the pistol and helpful for breaking it in.

First thing is to try shooting it from a sandbag rest. If it is still hitting low left contact Springfield. If off the rest it is on target check this out to see if it's the problem.
BTW, the chart is designed for a right handed shooter, if your a lefty reverse it.
