Welcome to the club Wandering Man. Yep you are limp wristing it a little. You have to get a firm grip on the little rascal and hold it down as much as you can. Things will start to come together with a little more practice. I have had one now about six months and I think it's great. Just remember these are the last chance gun for up close and personal. Like my buddy says stick it in their face and pull the trigger twice. If they don't let go pull it twice more. Good luck.
