    Okay, after 500 rounds this weekend I am giving up and looking for some suggestions on what to do....If I keep shooting this way my cheek will have a hole in it!! I really dont feel it when I am shooting until I notice the blood/skin on my comb and then I start lifting my head and then hear the famous word of LOST, so I have thought about using the Remington face saver, putting some mole skin on my comb, and have thought about just buying the CG soft comb.....anyone have any suggestions?

    Joe, vaseline helps---if you still have your P gun, try and compare the pitch. You may need to put some washers between the upper screw that holds your pad---this will give you some negative pitch.

    Good luck

    Try adding some length to the stock. Start with maybe a 1/2" and see if it still does it.

    Joe I have a new tube of the face saver that you can have. Give me a call whenever.

    Just an update I also have a couple of the black 1/4" thick tapered pitch changing buttplate spacers at the house that you are welcome to try as well since I don't need them.

    Joe - I have a CG also and found it necessary to change the pitch....as suggested by Phil.

    Dennis Devault of Devault Industries is a well known stock maker and I would recommend you contact him to discuss the problem you're having. He is the most expert of anyone I've ever run across and he fixed my CG. The fact that he makes his living custom making gun stocks should tell you something. Dennis can be reached at his office in Canton, Ohio, at 330/456-6070.

    Good luck

    Joe I updated my first post I have the spacers as well. Dennis would be a great source of info and if you decide to have stock work done he is one of the best.

    The pitch is the first thing to look at. If the pad is not making even contact with your whole shoulder pocket, the gun will try to rotate around the point with the most pressure. Usually this is due to not enough pitch. However, Caesar Guerini trap guns usually come with about 4° of pitch.

    I think the tapered spacers are the first, best option for the moment.

    It's the extreme cast, sell it, I sold mine for the same reason. Berettas did the same thing to me. Sold them too. I have 2 Perazzis with neutral stocks, (no cast) a joy to shoot. I even went back to 1-1/8 oz loads, after years of 1 oz because of face slap !

    Suggest you get the gun professionally fitted to you. I have a CG and it is fitted correctly and I don't even have a recoil. Forget pitch, palm and vaseline. That's a Band Aid to your problem. Good luck.

    My CG and my Beretta all kicked my face. My K-80 never has a hint of face kick with the heaviest of loads. It all comes down to the gun not fitting you properly. You have 3 choices, sale it, get stock that fits you mounted to it, or just live with it.

    Re-evaluate why you have it. If it beats you up, it surely must be no fun so get rid of it. However, if you are committed to it for whatever reason, then you need the advice from a professional like DeVault -- with no disrespect to the fellas here.

    ,,and this is from a guy who has three guerini's (unsingle combo, 28 GA sporting, and impact). BTW, I keep a Joel Etchen combo though i can't hit a box of clays with it unless I swing it like a bat...but i keep it cause it was a gift from my wife.

    Thanks for the input, however I am not going to sell the gun, I just got it a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! Every gun I've shot has done this to me, but I have just dealt with it. I am going to take chip up on his offer and try the pitch spacers and see if that helps.

    There are reasons for everything; adjustable ribs, combs, recoil pads and triggers. Why? because we're not all built alike, what works for you won't me or someone else.

    As trap guns evolved manufacturers have added more and more adjustments to fullfill the needs of most shoters. Some companies have supplied it all and some have stopped short of supplying everything. My problem is pitch and toe, this is where an adjustable recoil pad comes in to solve my fitting problem. I'd rather spend less than a hundred dollars on an adjustable pad to correct some comfort issues than spend thousands on a custom stock that in the end may not work long term.

    I have three Guerini's all have padded combs, I like the comfort they provide. Guerini's are great guns and point like a lazer. Get a padded comb and an adjustable pad and enjoy what is a really nice gun...............

    Is your comb parallel with your rib? I could shoot a thousand handicap loads through mine with no facial abuse whatsoever.

    The main thing is that if you can't solve the problem pretty quickly, stop shooting the gun. You will do damage to your cheek that will stay with you your whole life and could cause serious problems.
