You wouldn't expect to go out and buy a set of golf clubs and play like Tiger Woods the first time out would you. Shooting and golf are similar as they both require a certain set of fundamentals that must be practiced, practiced and practiced. Invest in a NRA First Pistol course, you will get basic gun safety, cleaning and care instruction along with some live fire lessons from a certified instructor.
In the mean time practice your grip and dry fire...an inexpensive laser can be found on e-bay for about $20. It won't be durable enough to use for actual firing but will help you see where the muzzle movement is going. Pin that shot diagnostic target on the wall, zero the laser at the center and dry fire (making sure the gun is safe and clear). If the dot moves into off-target zones make the recommended corrections and keep practicing until you can keep the dot steady.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
