I would suggest following this link: http://www.nrainstructors.org/SearchCourse.aspx
Select the boxes next to these courses:
NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation
NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course
then enter your zip code and a search radius. This will bring up a list of NRA training courses near you that would be appropriate for a brand new shooter. These courses are about a day long, and include classroom and range instruction. I've been shooting for many years and recently took the Basic Pistol Course as a refresher, and it was time well spent. For a new shooter, these courses would be invaluable.
