You should consider having just one of your elephant guns be purely functional and use an over sized recoil pad.
Your shoulder will appreciate it.

    Not necessary when using a mercury recoil reducer. Or a custom stock with a wide butt.

    Gotta go with edd on this one. There is no doubt the recoil pads are functional but hammered dog pookie comes to mind when looking at those pictures. Maybe if you removed the photo's you could save a little face.

    This argument will go on long after guns are gone
    Form follows function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The engineers are a bunch of nerds.
    The interior decorators are a bunch of fags.

    We are all somewhere on the line between the two.
    You pick your own spot on the spectrum.

    I don't know what to say. I know some engineers that could kick both of our arses at the same time. On the other hand I have seen some fags that could do the same.

    I knew a guy who used to paint cars for a living. He left runs, orange peel and dust in all his paint jobs. He soon went out of buisiness and never could figure out why. When someone would complain about the finish he would look at them like they were crazy.

    Some people are just wired that way. They will never understand why the tatoo of satan on their forehead keeps them from getting a job. They will have garbage pilled up in their yard and cant figure out why the HOA and the neighbors hate em.

    That's why "Grind to Fit" instructions are included, in the package, with the pad!

    Wow !!!!

    This thread went to hell in a hand basket since I last looked at it.

    My opinion is not important because everyone can do what they want, But I just have to say
    that an unfinished recoil pad looks terrible and functions even worse.

    One of the reasons for grinding to match the stock is to prevent it from catching on your clothing
    when mounting the rifle. (The reason that most dangerous game rifles have butt caps and no
    rubber recoil pads).

    Recoil has nothing to do with manliness,toughness,size or any other thing, it is tolerance.
    some have more tolerance than others simply put. so there decision to reduce recoil buy whatever
    means is there preference.

    Recoil pads do not reduce recoil, they minimize pressure points and distribute the recoil to
    help prevent bruising.(Use a steel but plate and you will see what I meen).

    On very hard kicking rifles I sometimes place a 25 lb bag of shot between me and the rifle for
    extended range sessions to add weight to the rifle reducing recoil. But I dont glue it to the
    rifle for use in the field.

    So as a gunsmith I chose not to install Gel Cell recoil pads because I dont like the way they
    look even if they are installed correctly and fit properly. I like a well made,well fitted and
    good looking recoil pad or butt plate on any rifle, so no matter what others like I have a
    choice and I go with craftsmanship every time.

    Just my opinion for what its worth.
