Bulged where and how much. Once the metal is stretched like that it will never be as strong when swaged back into place.

Bulged barrels generally can't be repaired (at least in the manner that you're thinking/hoping) REGARDLESS of the material. The only "repair" is to cut the barrels off behind the bulge, assuming you'd have at least 18" left.

The barrel tubes can be replaced, which is a labor intensive job and will likely far exceed the value of your gun.

Permanent sub-gauge in it?

Yep - It's time for a set of full-length Briley sub-gauge tubes if you want to shoot it.

As noted above, the only other safe alternative is to cut off the barrel(s) just behind the bulge, observing the US mandated minimal 18" shotgun bbl length, and are willing to live with an open choke (jug choking the shortened barrels will require additional work)

Dents can sometimes be raised, but working on a bulge itself is a shooter safety non-no.
