Hi, Skeeter,
I agree, shorter is better.
The current BSA Lightning XL SE might fit the bill for you if you can find one.  I have a couple and like them quite a bit.
Other than that, you might consider chopping a nice springer.  I have an R9 with the barrel chopped and choked to 12 inches. It measures around 38 inches with a 6 inch brake depending how you position the brake. It's a stiff but quick cocking stroke at that length, and loud report. It was great to hunt with, but not much fun for plinking.
I found the sweet spot with a 9 inch brake for a 40 inche overall length.

Have fun!

No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy.

I really like my .25 short Remington Express.

The LOP is also maybe 1.5" to long so it could be shortened in back also.

Short break barrels can work, but I took off one inch to many.
