A cheaper route than even the Limbsaver pad is to fill your hollow synthetic stock with sand or lead shot. You will get some muscles too

Synthetic stocks are nice for extreme wet weather but give more recoil in the process. Your buttstock is hollow, and you can take a sandwich sealable baggie and fill it half full of sand and slip it inside the stock. If there is more room, add a second bag.

I have an old Mossberg bolt action 20 g that just beat the crap out of you. Had trouble getting my wife to shoot more than a couple rounds out of it. I bought a $20 limb saver and it was night and day. Finally allowed her to get a good days range shoot out of it. Of coarse after she started to shoot better she asked me for her own. Picked up a Mossberg 500 20g w/ wood stock and 26" barrel. She loves that gun and haven't needed to put the limb saver on at all.

In terms of longetivity, the synthetic stock and limbsave recoil pad should last your lifetime. Sometimes rubber does lose its elasticness, and may crack on you over 30 years or so. By then they will have a new and improved recoil pad

Anybody have luck with just a regular six position stock? My wife is 5'2 and my shotguns LOP is just too long for her to properly hold it, meaning she gets more recoil than necessary. Maybe one of those limbsavers would work well on one of those.

The handgrip included stocks are where I felt the recoil the most (in the hand)

Anna has something there about muscles. Work on your chest and shoulders at the Fitness Center. Intake extra protein to facilitate muscle growth. You will see a large difference.

I was thinking about one with the handgrip because tacticool you know... The ones worth the handgrip are the only ones I can find. It seems like a good excuse to buy a shotgun for the wife but money doesn't grow on trees
