Welcome from East Texas.

Since you are new to pistols, I will give you some information I give to each person I try to help learn to shoot.

1. Your new pistol weighs 27 oz empty. With ammunition it will weigh something over 2 pounds.
2. The force required to pull the trigger is probably more than 6 pounds (and could be high as 10-12 pounds, but I doubt that will be the case.)
3. Because of the difference in the weight of the pistol and the force to pull the trigger, it is VERY easy to push or pull the pistol off of the target when you shoot.
4. Practice, Practice, Practice good trigger control!
5. DON'T try to achieve a perfect sight picture and quickly fire. (I guarantee you will miss if you do it this way)
5. Get a good sight picture and hold it as close and steady as you can and then slowly add pressure on the trigger until it fires. (You will know it is going to fire at some point as you keep adding pressure, but you should not know the exact instance ahead of time.)

When you have mastered this, you will be getting a good grouping of your rounds. Then you can work on adding quickness once you have trained yourself to keep good trigger control.

Best wishes for success with your new Taurus.
