Congrats on accomplishing one of your goals.
I will reinforce what was stated in previous posts, PRACTICE! and practice everything, not just shooting. Practice: retaining your weapon, drawing from various positions/holsters, etc..
Here is a weapons retention/speed draw/ self defense/read the situation game we use to play. The bad guy tries to take down the officer with a knive. Start out with the officer and the bad guy(another officer) about 10 feet apart and increase the distance until the officer can draw, shoot, and retain his weapon. My personel best as a bad guy was 28 ft before the best officer could take me out. We had one guy that was just so fast he could take out every officer from 34ft.
The point being, there are many aspects to CC. Learn more and practice.
PS. Did I mention practice more?
