I just bought one this week and it is a GREAT gun. I bought it at a local pawn shop in Orem, UT, for $369, which I thought was a great deal. It came with two 17-round mags, a heavy gun lock, a speed loader, and a hard case (although I quickly moved it to my better, padded case). It fires great and has hardly any recoil, and I just fell in love with it. I'm left-handed, so having a gun with a right- and left-handed safety and mag release was a huge plus. I also really enjoy the ability to reajust the sights for windage with a simple screwdriver. I'm still fiddling around with it.
I was a bit worried as to how I would be able to carry it concealed, because it is a long gun, but it is actually quite thin given its size, and when I carry it in my Blackhawk nylon IWB holster it's practically impossible to know that I'm even carrying, even just wearing a T-shirt. And I'm a skinny guy.
It's a great all-around gun, especially for the price. I'm glad I chose this one, instead of the Ruger P95.

Something that helped win me over as well were these reviews on YouTube:

I bought one, cleaned it, went to shoot it. It stove piped about halfway through the first mag. Then about every other shot the slide wouldn't close completely. Finally after firing about 100 rounds in about 20 minutes it was hotter than most guns after firing 500 rounds in 20 minutes. In my opinion, the Ruger SR9 is one of the coolest looking guns out there, but I absolutely do not trust my life on it. Needless to say, I sold it and switched back to my XD.

This may have been a problem with only this gun, but I've heard others share the same experiences with the gun.

ETA: The accuracy of the SR9 was amazing, it is extremely thin and light, and easy to conceal. But the malfunctions counteracted the perks for me.
