I've tried gripping my pistol like Jarrett suggests and using only the end of my finger to pull the trigger and all my shots ended up being low and to the left. I either have to practice more or continue with what I am used to.
Good thing the gunshow is next month, I need practice ammo!

Try to not squeeze with your bottom three fingers of your trigger hand. If you squezze with those fingers AS you squeeze the trigger, the muzzle will naturally walk low and to the left. It is a common problem for many shooters to squeeze those fingers as they squeeze the trigger and are not accustomed to a proper combat grip.
Your non-shooting hand should come up from underneath the firearm and your middle knuckle and your index finger should be in contact with the bottom of the trigger guard. Now squeeze HARD (and I mean HARD) with your non-shooting hand while leaving go with your bottom three fingers of your shooting hand (they should be wrapped under the non-shooting hand at this point). Your non-shooting hand thumb should be pointing on the side opposite of your trigger finger (i.e. trigger finger off the trigger and both the trigger finger and non-shooting hand thumb pointing forward toward your target.)
Address the trigger with just the pad of your trigger finger as shown in the video.
Now when you squeeze the trigger in a smooth squeeze from front to back, the muzzle should NOT move.
