One thing you need to remember about shooting USPSA or any other type of competition the first time.
No one expects a first time shooter to come out and smoke the course. Everyone was new at one time, Everyone goes through learning curves. So forget this MAKING A FOOL OF MY SELF BS.
Three things are gonna happen the first time you try any new shooting discipline:
1. You're gonna have fun
2. You're gonna learn something
3. You're gonna meet some great people.
