This is EXACTLY what I was going to write. Had the exact same issue with mine. Shooting it some will help, but what Point6liter wrote is more the issue. Not to mention the fact that the shield is a very slim gun and I couldn't get as much as a full grip the first time around. I've gotten used to it since then and love it. Good luck!!
