I would say the best "value" in a handgun for someone on a budget would be the S&W M&P 2.0 Compact. It IS the Glock alternative with better ergonomics and iron sights and a decent trigger. The Beretta 92 is a fine gun, but would be more suitable for big hands. For a first and second handgun, I would probably stick with two that have the same action. If you go the Glock route the 17 would be a fine choice, but as pointed out, many prefer the Glock 19 size (which is the same as the M&P 2.0 Compact). A full-size M&P 2.0 might be nice, too, with a 4.2" barrel. As PB pointed out, a 9mm revolver might be an interesting second choice. Perhaps my favorite is the venerable Ruger Speed Six in 9mm. I am not familiar with newer SIGs butI prefer the lower bore axis on the Glocks and M&Ps. A CZ in any flavor would be a fine gun, but a Glock for parts practicality, home gunsmithing, etc. just makes more sense. Since you are limited to 10 rounds, you may at least want to checkout a Glock 47 (thin Glock 19). The sky is the limit and caliber choice should be considered as well. Everyone is giving you an opinion of what they like, so I will give you mine. I would ask for 3 permits instead of 2 and get something in .22LR besides my other two choices. I would seriously consider getting two copies of the same gun, two Glock 19s for example, or a 19 and a 17, or an M&P 2.0 9mm and a 2.0 Compact. My choice would be two M&P 2.0 Compacts, one with a 4" barrel and one with a 3.6" barrel. Why, better value than a Glock. Both share the SAME magazines, win, both have the same operation, win... Welcome and good luck. My choice for a 22LR would be a Ruger Mark IV 22/45 or 22/45 Lite, although any Ruger Mark II or IV would fit the bill.
