I've shot several, you would be better served by going with the 35. The 24 is pretty sweet, but sort of really a little behind the curve for the shooting sports its got potential for use. Best use I can think of is steel shooting. There are several folks that use them for steel challenge style shooting at the clun I belong too, but when they do other practical things where there is more shoot and scoot, or restrictions on guns by class, they usually go with the 35, or a 34 if there is no major/minor break.
The C part of the equation gives some muzzle climb reduction, but may get you kicked into divisons/catagories with the true compensated racegun weilding people.
Having said all of that, a 24 with both a C and regular barrel are on my tactical tupperware wish list.
