drill a big hole under the butt plate and pour in a hat full of lead shot.
It makes the gun a bit butt heavy but will dampen recoil.
Or use the  feather lite loads, or start shooting a 28 gauge.

suggesting 28 gauge is just plain mean.  Roll Eyes

I said 16 earlier. That should do it.

It's not called sweet 16 for nuffin'.  Grin

28 gauge is for Buckaroos. I think most of us would have trouble getting into that category!

A recoil pad is the best suggestion. It helps a lot to dampen the kick, it's much more comfortable and it stays put on your shoulder. A lighter shot load also helps. An once in a 12 gauge is plenty. Mounting the gun firmly in the shoulder pocket is critical and keeping your head down on the stock reduces getting smacked in the jaw. Shotgun fit is extremely important. If the stock is too long, you can't mount it properly in the shoulder pocket. If too short, you may get smacked in the nose by your thumb.
