How a gun fits your hand doesn't get the merit it deserves. I've had people ask me which is better, G43 or Shield. And/or which one do I have. My answer is that I prefer the Shield because of the way it fits my hand, not because it is objectively better. How it fits affects where your trigger finger naturally falls on the trigger, which then affects how you press the trigger and whether that pushes shot to the left, or pulls them to the right. I've fondled the G43x and G48, I haven't shot them. I've been following some extensive threads regarding shooting them and it doesn't appear they have a mechanical defect that affects the accuracy, it's a fit issue. The common observation is that the longer, slightly thicker grip feels better than the G43. I personally don't like the G26, but others prefer it to the G48 or 43x. Once again, it comes down to personal preference. So if you bought one, can't shoot it straight and find you don't like it, you got the bad luck of the draw. Nothing wrong with the gun or with you, it just isn't a good fit.
