Most .380s are small guns. They usually are a little snappy. Mostly remember not to put your thumb behind the slide.

Have you had any safety training yet?

What Rick said ^. Some are worse than others though. I've shot a S&W BG380 & a Kahr P380, both were easy to shoot - even one-handed.
What make/model is it?

Don't worry my 10 year old grandson shoots my 45 acp and 45 colt. You'll be ok with the recoil.

The recoil shouldn't be bad at all, unless it's a really small 'mouse gun' of some sort. Just to be completely safe, you might just load one round in the mag, chamber it & shoot it, to see just how it is. That way, if you are surprised with more recoil than expected, there is not a second round in the pistol that you accidently discharge by reflex. Some pistols, if decocked, are double action on the first round & single action on the second. That second round can go off really easy!
