Shooting advice sought

While I work on this myself, I thought I'd see if anyone here had any thoughts/tips.

I just bought a Beretta PX4, 9mm, so I'm starting to get used to it. I've noticed this problem (with me, of course, not the gun): my first shot (at whatever distance, 25 ft, 50 ft, 25 yards, so far) is acceptable. That first shot is of course in double-action. Then, often, the following single-action shots are often badly (even for me) off target. So, I have tried to work on my fundamentals, of course, and also have tried a couple of experiments. First, I have have de-cocked after each shot, so that every shot is double-action. Success! A good grouping. Second, and more oddly, I have shot a few groups normally (double-action followed by single-action), but offhand. Even this gives better results.

Any thoughts?
