Just think about and ingrain the 4 basic shooting rules before you go:

1) The gun is always loaded
2) Finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot
3) Be aware of your target and what is beyond
4) Never point at anything you're unwilling to DESTROY

As mentioned, the range staff should be able to spend a few minutes with you going over this stuff, safe shooting, and operation of the firearm.

Hopefully you're both over 21, so you can rent a handgun.

A possible idea would be to ask if any SoCal Calgunners could meet up with you to get you started - that could be a good way to get intro'ed to the sport.

Good luck!
