H Richard is absolutely correct. With a little bit of good instruction and a decent amount of practice, just about anyone can become proficient with handguns (though not necessarily a marksman). There are several relatively small items an experienced instructor can teach you that will improve your ability rather significantly.

I've been an instructor since the 1970s and got my NRA handgun instructor's certificate about 25 years ago. Since then I've taught the basic course to dozens of people, from complete beginners to "experienced" shooters. All of them improved their shooting skills after a half dozen or so hours at the range. Some of them actually became quite good and would end up competing against me in local matches.

Find an instructor and take the course. Not only will your skills improve, you will gain more confidence and actually have more fun.
