p22 loss of accuracy

Last fall I bought a p22 to save money on ammo. I have 1000 plus rounds through it with no issues before today. I went down to my range this afternoon and I was hitting my 10 yard targets but had more misses than usual at 15 yards. I slowed my mechanics down but accuracy got worse. Within a few magazines I couldn't even hit my ten yard targets. I switched to CCI thinking it was the ammo with no improvement. I came up the hill and cleaned my barrel with a barrel snake and went back down with no improvement. Sometimes it seemed to be missing high left but Kentucky windage did not produce hits. Anyone have any ideas of what might be causing this lack of accuracy? The pistol is less than 1 year old; will walther make this problem right? I was shooting 12 inch steel plates. Usually I can empty a magazine in a few seconds with only one or two misses at 15 yards. Unless I have just developed a severe sight disorder I am confident it is not just me shooting like crap.

if\s the barrel is really clean?,if so then check the front barrel nut for tightness. I have seen one come loose and cause this same problem.
