Jeff Cooper and is recognized worldwide as THE go to for basic pistol fundamentals and self defense shooting. Even if you aren't looking at SD the fundamentals are universal across all shooting as far as stance, grip and trigger control.

so learning on the full power stuff just has to be the ticket. If possible get the lightest, lowest recoil, target ammo
for your weapon, possible.
It is hard enough to learn to shot and even harder if you develop a "Flinch" from high power, high noise, loads, while
figuring out what you should be doing.
A good grip (push/pull)and stance is a must............. locked arms and a death grip will wear you out. Instruction may be
the best way to get the ball rolling if possible but lots of rounds down range will work, over time.
Might look at a few gun shows on the "Sportsman channels" that give advise on how to shoot and give SD tactics.

Experienced shooters are more than happy to teach the new guys. Not only do you learn to shoot accuractly, but you learn to do it with speed while under the pressure of the clock. I've found that most of the books I've run across are outdated and do not teach what the top guys in the industry are doing.
