My 2 Cents Worth!!
Sadly, I believe that you have developed a flinch!!! Try doing some dry firing work with your TLE. An excellent method for doing this is to take a 1' square piece of 1/4" plywood and mount it to a wall (in basement or garage) at eye level, attach a sheet of standard printer paper to the plywood with an 1" X drawn in the center. Now, physically and visually verify that your pistol is unloaded and no ammo is present in the room, then, place a standard #2 pencil down the barrel, pushed back against the breech. While holding the muzzle about 3/4" away from the paper, sight on the center of the X. Concentrate on your sight picture, breathing and trigger squeeze. When you pull the trigger, the firing pin strike will force the pencil out of the barrel and into the paper, leaving a mark on the paper. Continue until you have "fired" 10 -15 "shots". Lower your pistol and you will find that your actions have created a "grouping" left by the pencil point on the paper. Keep working on the fundamentals of good marksmanship with this exercise. Strive to create the smallest groupings possible.
I learned this trick from a fellow pistol shooter, who was part of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, at Ft. Benning, Georgia. You will be amazed what it will do for your accuracy and elimination of a flinch!!! Give it a try and let us know how it works out.
Keep 'em in the 10 ring and be safe!!
