I feel so not prepared to carry though. I do not feel like I'm accurate enough at shooting...
Congratulations. Accuracy is mostly the result of practice once you understand how to shoot. If after a few hundred rounds (always sounds like a lot to a beginner, but it isn't really) you don't see your accuracy improving, then get more instruction on the "how to". You'll do fine.
