1) Get some good training. It's worth the money. It's especially worth the money if you do it first thing--before you can develop bad habits that may be hard to break.
2) The difference between the M&P and the Glock really comes down to personal preference. I own both and I don't think that either is appreciably better/more reliable/easier to shoot.
3) Download some pistol training targets (links below) and really use them when you start shooting. Don't just blaze off a dozen rounds--shoot slow and smooth, considering your form for every pull of the trigger.
4) Dry fire practice is cheap, easy and quick, and can really help your form. It can be really useful to dry fire with your eyes closed and focus on feeling the movement of the firearm in your hand as you go through the motions.
