Newb question with sighting and recoil
So I just picked up my new glock 19 and took it to the range and fired about about 150 rounds. I have shot a 44mag revoler and an old star 45 acp but for some odd reason I have no accuracy with the 19. I know it's a new gun and I still have to get used to it but I was hitting low and to the right of where I was aiming at about 10 yards. Any recommendations of what I am doing wrong? Also as to the title, seems to be a bit more recoil than I expected (nost likely due to lighter polymer frame) is the only way to reduce recoil practice or is there something that I am missing. Final question when you guys are firing can/do any of you keep your eyes open while shooting to see where the muzzle is going? I can't help from blinking and by the time I have fired a shot my sights are back where they were supposed to be. I know it's confusing but any help would be greatly appreciated.
