Cheek Bone Bruising

I have a IZH-27 shotgun in 20 ga. I love the gun but after extended firing sessions my cheek bone is brusied. I'm 5'10 and weigh 250 lbs. When shooting I'm having to tilt by head down so that I can see right down the rib if not I'm looking down on the front bead. I have heard that my comb could be too high and this can be fixed by sanding the top of the stock down until the correct sight picture can be established. I'm a little apprehensive in doing this my self because once it's gone you can't put it back. Does any one have any suggestions. I live around the Beaumont area of Texas.

Sorry to hear that your having problems Sgtdw! Really I am. There is nothing worse than bringing home a new shotgun, taking it out to shoot it , and it kicks the hell out of you, or it just isn't comfortable to shoot. I know your working out your "fit" problem, and I hope it works out. For all those doubters about the "GUNFIT" argument, This is testimony that if the gun doesn't fit you either leave it on the rack, or take it to a competent gunsmith to fit it properly for you. Good luck SgtDW, I hope it works out for you. :)
Good Deal sgtdw! Love to hear happy endings!!!!
