I was visiting a friend who owns two guns and I held his Baretta. I thought I'd be nervous but I wasn't.
What is the proper stance when firing a gun? I know how to hold one correctly.
Now try a CZ52.
The keywords are supposed to seperate:how do I fix that?
Sign up for a ccw class and defensive training class then hit the range every weekend for practice.
Did you gesticulate wildly while talking forcing everyone to duck one or more times until the gun owner took it away from you? LOL!
Now learn the operation and theory of it and go shooting.
Stay at the end that ain't spitting lead.

Don’t point it at anything that you are not ok with shooting. Ever.
Don’t put your finger on the trigger until you have your target in your sights and you also know what’s near or behind what you are about to be shooting at.
Congrats. Be safe. Train regularly.
This should be interesting...
Good for you. Now go get some basic knowledge, then find a gun store with a range that rents guns. Feel them, fondle them, then rent a few and fire them. From this point forth you'll be hooked, soon you will be a gun owner and before you know it, you'll be a well versed semi-expert on firearms.
keywords don’t separate unless you put them on separate lines. Hit the ‘enter’ key after each one. I put the most relevant keyword for this subject in for you. banglist
I couldn’t help myself.

What kind of Beretta? A 92FS?
LOL. I’ll make sure I’m not the one being aimed at!
I have them recite the rules back to me at least three times during the session.
1. Treat all firearms as if they were loaded.
2. Never point the gun at anything you aren't willing to destroy.
3. Don't put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to fire.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
You need to know these rules and follow them always.
I didn’t fire it. It wasn’t loaded. I just held it to see what it would be like.
I was at his house,not at a range.
The best safety is the one between your ears.
Remember, You can “never take it back”
