    a new guy

    hello all,
    I was just looking around and thought I would sign up. I just bought a new S&W 40ve. Finally
    got through the waiting period and went to try it out a few days ago. I really like it, has a pretty good trigger pull. Find my self shooting a little to the left of the target. I guessing that it is something I will have to get used to. Does anyone know a fix on lessing up on the hard trigger pull. From what I gather not
    many people don't like the Sigma series, but I guess it is all in what you like. I happen to like it.

    i used to own a Sigma .40 also, and like yours it had a pretty hard pull. I took mine to a armorer/gunsmith and he lessened mine by about a pound and a half...made the world of difference. Those arent that bad for the money.

    Welcome from SE Texas.

    If your shots group low and to the left most likely you are jerking the trigger instead of squeezing it.

    If your shots group high to the left - say in the 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock position - you are probably anticipating the recoil and pushing the firearm up. This is called riding the recoil. Groups in this area are also caused by lack of follow-through.

    If your group is consistent at about 9 o'clock you most likely do not have your finger on the trigger properly. You are probably squeezing at an angle instead of straight back.

    If you group is high to the right you may be heeling the firearm - anticipating the recoil and pushing with the heel of your hand.

    If your shots group fairly consistently to the right in the 3 o'clock area you are probably thumbing the gun. That is, as the gun goes off you are pushing on the side of the frame with your thumb.

    If your group is consistently low, say in the 6 o'clock area, you may be breaking your wrist, that is, anticipating the recoil and cocking the wrist down. Low shots also come from improper follow-through when the shooter relaxes too quickly.

    If all the shots are hitting right, low, say in the 4 to 5 o'clock area, you may be tightening your grip just as the gun fires. This is another form of anticipating recoil
