Thanks for your thoughts, Michael.  I agree with you that the juncture at which the barrel and breech are connected can also be responsible for point-of-impact issues.  Perhaps this may have been the actual cause of the laser dot moving from its original position.  Also, regarding your statement that it would take an extreme amount of force to bend a barrel, I agree with it as well, however, to an extent that pressure (which may lead to torquing of the barrel) is constant.  I have seen that even the steel of decent barrels do bend ever so slightly and just enough to affect POI a significant amount, especially at far distances.
