If you are shooting tight groups that are off center then you are doing something right. Flinching, pulling the trigger or poor sight alignment results in scattered shots not groups. A pistol bullet is still in the bore during recoil and bullet bore time is a critical factor in vertical bullet strikes: the longer the bullet is in the bore during recoil the higher that it hits on target. A loose grip on the pistol will let the pistol rise higher than a firm grip. This is controlled by developing a uniform grip. It is obvious that two people won't have the same grip and that the bullet leaves the bore in a higher or lower position.

Adjustable sights are the answer.
