S&W M&P Shield POI

I thought I was nuts [and maybe I am] or the world's poorest marksman [and maybe I am]. Just to check my sanity and marksmanship, I asked one of the pros at the shop to shoot my M&P Shield. He came up with the same result - it shot extremely high and very wide to the left. The shop adjusted the front sight, and it moved POI about halfway from where it had been to where it should be. After the second front sight adjustment, it shot dead on [at seven yards - who knows what it will do when I lengthen the range].

The front sight now looks visibly off center to the left.

What would cause this anomaly? What, if anything, can be done about it?
