I didnt realize it then, but I know now how extremely lucky I was to find one in a 24''...let alone finding one at all.
I had placed a 21'' on order through the local shop, and since Benelli is only direct from factory orders I got a lead time of 60-90 days which is standard. I went in there the very nexr weekend with the wife to find her an EDC gun and saw it on the shelf! I had them cancel the order and picked that one up. Glad I did.
