First Time to the Range!.
Today was the day where I went to my first Shooting Range. I went with my wife and we both used the Sig P229 9MM. It was great, I was really nervous at first but when I shot a few rounds, It felt great! We both can't wait to go back and try out a few other guns.
Find out if the range offers a basic handgun class - and take it. That's the best advice I can give you. Do your research here as to make, model, caliber, trigger action etc. then rent a bunch of guns so you can experience the recoil of different calibers and the feel of guns with differing actions (SAO, DA/DA, DAO, Safe Action etc.). Buy the one that feels and shoots the best for you.
Welcome to the shooting arts!!

+1 to taking the basic pistol class, best $100 I ever spent!!!
No one in my family shoots without a firearms safety course first. + about a million on that. Congrats!
Welcome to the world of firearms. Enjoy the journey.
