Thanks everyone,

Just to let you all know, I went to the range yesterday. The problem was mostly not prestaging the trigger.

When I did prestage, the shots were center mass. I did anticipate recoil on a few shots. And I still didn't prestage the trigger on a few shots. Now that I was looking for the problem, I saw the barrel dip every time.

I'm going to practice more with the Glock, but when I have the money, I'm going to get a 1911. I still hate the trigger. I hate the pretravel and the trigger reset feels awful to me compared to my P238.

But thanks again everyone. I still have to work on my technique, but you guys have given me a great place to start.
