Welcome, Miss Brenda. As an old Tn redneck, I'm always glad to see a woman interested in firearms...whether it be for protection or for recreation. In either case, as the above guys have said, practice and familiarity is the key to safe and responsible firearms use and ownership.

I did the two-hour private instruction with both the 9mm and the shotgun. With the ruger, the instructor helped me figure out that I do better shooting with the isosceles stance vs. weaver cuz I'm left eye dominant. Shotgun I shot from the hip and did good, too.

Welcome!    Sounds and looks like you're doing great so far.     I'll echo what others have said on the importance of continued practice and training.    On a slightly different subject,   if you don't already have one, be sure to get a good flashlight, for all kinds of good reasons beyond self-defense.    You can get all kinds of good suggestions here if you need, and you don't have to spend a fortune on a top teir like Surefire if you don't want.    The Streamlight brand is much more affordable but good quality.    Good luck in your journey!

Good choices for your first two guns. My first 12g was a Maverick. If you didn't already buy it with an 18" or 20" barrel you may want to consider it for home defense for easier maneuvering. I bought mine with an 18" then bought a long barrel for clay shooting. Both Maverick and Mossberg 500 barrels are interchangeable so used barrels can be found. Easy to switch back and forth.

Welcome to TGO. Glad you are getting training. NEVER stop training. So many people get a gun and get a little training then never do anymore. To me that's worse than not having a gun at all. 

Shoot Point Blank is a great facility. Use it a lot. You can shoot slugs in the Shotgun there.
