    Sounds like maybe you're mounting the toe too high on your shoulder. Maybe the stock is just too short & you're getting too high before you pull it back into your shoulder-- or try loosening the top screw of the recoil pad & putting 2 or 3 washers between the pad & stock, sometimes this will help if the washers seem to help you can add tapered spacers.

    round off the toe with a dremel sanding drum just like the kickeez rocker pad.

    Yeah, i have a bruised toe also. My 3 year old grandson hit me on the left big toe with a plastic toy hammer from Home Depot. Chipped the bone. Six months and still hurting. Little brat. Bulge.

    I will also vote for trying a rocker style pad.

    I have several pachmeyer pads with the point on whitch the toe has been ground off. after that I have not needed to go to a softer pad.

    What?! -- Your grandson broke your toe with a plastic toy hammer from Home Depot? Have you thought about suing them? Don't you know how much money they have? At the very least they'll pay you a few grand of nuisance money just to go away. At best maybe you can milk this debilitating injury into a lifelong Social Security Disability claim and never have to work again. Don't feel guilty, you'll actually be doing everyone a service by making the word a safer place and protecting them from negligent corporations like Home Depot. In any case, remember -- YOU ARE A VICTIM.

    I'm joking of course, but in reality this is how roughly 1/3 of the country thinks nowadays. SHAME and PRIDE are passé.
