Welcome Aboard from the Peach State!
Don't discount the .22 as a tool for training. It's an excellent platform for devoloping GOOD, proper shooting habits. I'd advise that, when you can, get into a training course that'll get you started in basic fundamentals and solid safety practices.
This is a great forum to bounce ideas, questions, and so forth off it's members. Those here are more than helpful and will point you in a good direction to start off on.
Stay Safe, learn ALL that you can, and again, Welcome Aboard!

Welcome from the great state of Texas!
You may want to look in to airsoft, I have heard that they can be beneficial. I even saw a S&W Sigma .40 at Fry's the other day, and compared it to mine (mentally, not actually pulled mine out in the store) and it is the same weight as mine is when it is empty. Same feel and shape, I think I'll go buy it.
Thanks, CTurner91, now I have to explain to my Wife how you made me go buy something else
