I agree with the title..
getting your first gun, [for me at least], and you apparently..
can be a freaky feeling. lol
When I got my first handgun,
my brother who is a cop/sherriff is the one who got it for me,
and he brought it to me and said "a gift".. and handed me a case. lol
I opened it , and was very excited, but also felt weird! lol
Like holy $&^%!
Stuffs just got 'real'!
Then, for days, or even a week or two after..
I kept thinking silly things like " holy crap.. I have a REAL handgun in there"
and " man, hope i really dont have to use it other than for practice" ... lol
I would suggest you take a course if you havent already, or havent already decided to.
Though I think it is required to take a course in order to own/carry a handgun..
at least here in this state, where I am vacationing from my home on the lunar surface. lol
and definitely get a lock for it,
and then keep that gun with the lock on it in another locked safe. lol
All the best.
