In the meantime,,,enjoy your new gun - get someone experienced to show you the basics, sight picture/trigger squeeze - and give serious consideration to reloading.
Reloading isn't some "black art" reserved for well seasoned shooters.
On the contrary, I'm forever thankful that the guy that sold me my first real center fire - as a "newbie" shooter in 1977 (Ruger Blackhawk .38/.357mag) pushed me real hard to get into handloading.

My brother handloaded for his sR9c for a year with a Lee handpress kit- shot every Saturday, 200 rounds or so, cleaned, resized, belled and primed the cases on Sunday while watching the Rockies, Broncos, or the Outdoor channel.... and charged/seated bullets on Monday or Tuesday night after work ..... thousands of rounds in a year, on a kit that cost him less than $75, and fit in a shoe box under the couch when he was not using it. He went from being a pistol newb to beating me in informal plate matches.....
