get very familiar with your gun. the beretta 92 is a fantastic first gun. easy to take apart and clean. recoil is very easy to handle as it is big and heavy and only firing 9mm. very accurate due to the long barrel and sight radius. i learned on a taurus clone myself. luckily for you, you get to learn on a quality firearm instead of a taurus POS.
Favorite range gun for the money - CZ 75B or STI Spartan V 9mm
Go-to carry setup - Walther PPS or PPQ in FIST kydex holster 1AK
Favorite semi-auto design - HK P7
