Many - most, even, bullseye target shooters use optical sights so the longer sight radius does not apply. And you can't shoot a longslide in Service Pistol where iron sights are required.

There is some interest in longslides in USPSA Limited where barrel length is not restricted and iron sights are required. Many of them have a lot of weight reducing cuts for cyclic rate and handling; one brand is the Fat-Free Six Inch.
