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.

I suggest allowing your rear sight guide to drop somewhat. Make sure you get a good roll of cheek (if you're 250 you either bench buicks or you've got em same as me) on the stock.

This means you'll have to 'float' your birds / clays somewhat. Its not hard and you might even like it better.
