This is not often caught unrehearsed on camera, but you will see it at a public range occasionally. Often the shooter is a small woman, new to guns. After experiencing recoil a few times, notice how she plunges the pistol forward as she pulls the trigger. That's recoil anticipation. The move is a conditional reflex to protect yourself from an imminent hit.
Two things are needed to break it: 1- mental: stop worrying about recoil, and 2- physical: lock your wrist. Because it works, people assume the wrist was "limp". In reality the wrist was jerking the gun.
