NRA's Basic Pistol Shooting. It is also the "text" of the Basic class of the same name. Both are a great start to get the, well, basics down. However, I would add this:

shooting of any kind is a journey, not a destination. It may take hours to learn what you seek now but an enjoyable lifetime, if not lifestyle, to master. As you peel each layer of the onion you'll find there are more, richer, and different experiences.

Enjoy, and be safe.

This 6 set DVD titled "Cold Steel: Never Unarmed" was gifted to me by a very kind and generous member here. I recommend it highly. It covers very small pocket guns to large guns.......step by step. It is very informative and very good for a beginner to guns. I found this very helpful.

Well said.

Case in point, I spent a couple of weeks shooting targets, going for

accuracy, improving groups, and techniques. I found that by the time

I got to the range, dragged out all my gear, got set up, loaded, and ready,

I was an agitated, out-of-breath, nervous wreck. I stopped, took a break,

calmed down, and relaxed. THEN my rifles really started showing me what

they could do.

A few days later I was shooting with a group of noobs, who never even

bothered changing the targets, even though they had shot ragged 6"

holes in the bulls-eyes! They were just enjoying the sheer fun of

"bringing it" with their new rifles. And it was also fun to join in...
