handheld LF cameras are a lot of fun, I had a Crown Graphic with bulb flash and everything and it was a lot of fun to use. It is not easy photography but not as hard as people might think, you need to learn how to prefocus. IOW work on the DOF so you know that on distances from x feet to xx feet you will have everything sharp and then dont worry about the range finder. this is done much easier than with a MF or 35 mm camera. Go out with a polaroid holder and enjoy, you will have a lot of fun.
