I need an inexpensive all around shotgun which will primarily be used for turkey hunting. I would like your suggestions on something inexpensive where I can change chokes. Thanks

Mossburg500 or a rem 870 either wont break the bank & will shoot 3" shells which have killed many a critter before a 3.5 was ever thought about.

Mossberg 500 if you want the very cheapest "good" quality shotgun that will do it all. The Remington 870 Express won't break the bank either and is definitely good quality.

If you want an all around shotgun, I would stay away from a 3.5" gun like an 835. They are capable of shooting bird loads, but aren't known for reliably cycling them.
