I picked up an 809 when they were on sale at Academy for $299 the week after Christmas. Finally got the chance this morning to head up to the range to try her out. Considering this was my first time firing this pistol, and only my second time to shoot (first trip I shop a buddy's XDm), I was content with my performance. Went through a 100 rd box of WWB and a 50 rd box of Monarch Brass with no ammo issues. Had some decent groupings at 7 yards, and some others that were low and left, but that's what practice is for. Gun performed well EXCEPT one of the magazines would pop out every couple of shots. I finally got annoyed at it and threw it back in the bag and finished with the other magazine, which continued to work flawlessly.
