I am shooting great groups at 40 yards but I keep shooting a inch to the left, adjust the sights and I'm still shooting left. Its not a major concern but it irritates me..

Either you are subconsciously pulling it, or holding just off of it, or you have not walk-back rest tuned it and that is slightly off. Those would be my guesses.

I must be pulling it, I just don't see how I shoot with my hand open on the riser. I may be dropping my arm or something

I doubt it's his rest . As long as fixed blades and field points are still hitting . I would assume you are doing something to pull them to that spot . You can shoot with an open hand and still put torque on the riser . It could be all mental too . Once your mental game gets messed up who knows where it's going . Lol

I have a tendency to pull my shots to the left too. I know it's me because my most confident steady shots are usually centered well. pardon me I'm going to go shoot a few right now.

I start to pull my shots to the left if I'm starting to get tired.
