There are times and there are reasons when the shot will not go where you are looking at.

 

In ott case this might be the tie to the forks that causes this, the jerk of your hand, or any thing else.

 

If "shoots to the right" are consistent than simply move the aiming point a bit to the left - what else?

 

cheers,

Could be a number of things. Here are a couple things to check. Do you hold the frame in the left hand? If so, you could be tilting your head too far downwards as you aim down your bands. Making a small change in posture can alter the reference point.

Could be your pouch release. Try to pinch on top of the ammo and not in front of it.

We were discussing this a few weeks ago. I also find that sometimes the shot flies slightly unexpected - about an inch at 10m (but consistent), I simply correct by adjusting my aim. I don't have the same issue with TTF.

 

Could also be inconsistent or misaligned elastic...

 

I'll see if I can find the post...

Welcome to the forum. There is a introducing forum.
Which hand do you hold?
Think SamuraiShamot told right things.
Also you could have to adjust the cant angle by turn a bit clockwise or adjust the parallel alignment of the frame to the target by rotate it a bit to the left.

You can have this happen in ttf also. Although it's less likely.

I've found all left/right issues can be fixed by adjusting the angle you face your target.



I prefer OTT. But TTF is definitely the easiest method for making aimed shots.
