Why not keep the 835 and find a used in good condition 20 ga? Look around for an NEF or H&R in 20, not the single shots, but the pumps. You can also find used Mossy 500A's in 20 ga for around $175 and short barrels are not very expensive if you go the way NGIB did. When looking for barrels, look for a shorter barrel for the 835 at the same time. With just a bit of leg work, you can have 2 shottys with not much invested. One for you and one for the Mrs.
Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
