    You'll excuse my sarcasm and for that I apologize, but you made my point.

    You probably know this already but it sounds like your sights are set up for the 6 o'clock

    Sam1911 beat me to it. I cut my teeth on 12+ pound DAO and now Glock, XDs, etc feel like single action. :)

    I have to do the same. I have trained my eyes to go right eye dominate on command, most of the time. Since it is most of the time I still use Scotch tape for the occasional two foot miss to the left....

    Never had much time for Glocks since they were invented - never shot one nor wanted one nor any other plastic gun. Then last Summer my Wife and I vowed to find pistols that worked well for ourselves and shot everything we could rent, borrow, or buy to find that gun.

    I borrowed a G26 and from the moment I shot it I started kicking myself because in my hands it was the most accurate auto I had ever shot. So I bought a Glock 26 Gen4 and I love it. It is the gun I compare others I try to now.

    My background was always revolvers and my Wife influenced me to shoot them only DA as that was the way her father taught her. Both of us have no/had no problems making the Glock work for us.

    I think training on a DA revolver could be considered "cross training" for learning to deal with any handgun trigger that may be "different" than perfect. DA only revolvers make you understand bone deep how it works but it takes a lot of rounds down range to do that.

    IMO/YMMV.
