Thread: Bruise to face when shooting my shotgun, Why does this happen

    Bruise to face when shooting my shotgun, Why does this happen

    I would be guessing that the stock does not suit me.
    Question is this because its to long, short or another reason.
    If you know the answer please reply

    Many thanks TH

    I would think this is because your not holding it correctly. possibly after the first shot it moves and you shot again without putting it back where it should be.

    You need to get someone that knows about gun fit to check it out. You can't answer it here without seeing you and the gun together.

    It could be gun mount, or the gun's LOP, cast, drop or simply the stock profile that is not right for you.

    Time to get back to basics:-

    Gun mount needs addressing.

    Stock fit to you.

    I had a 12g Lincoln and it didn't fit properly so after I fired a few shots I kept getting a badly bruised shoulder and face. The shotgun was just to big for me, so I got some of the stock altered to suit a recoil pad added this stopped my face and shoulder getting bruised.
