Limp-wristing is a problem with shooters new to semi-auto's especicially small ones. I have a KelTec PF9 that I hadn't shot for about a year, and I had to spend a half hour retraining my self to hold on to it. I took one of my son-in-laws out to the range and he couldn't shoot my Beretta 92 without having the same problem you are. I thought he was limp-wristing, but hesitated to tell him that. The next time we went out I told him to hold on tightly and don't let the muzzle rise - he had no problems. How do you tell a guy that's 6'8", 300 lbs ,and can pick up boulders the size of my torso, that he's limp-wristing. Don't take this as an insult to your manhhod, it is a common occurance. Practice, hold on tight, and don't let the muzzle rise, you'll develop the technique quickly.
