Welcome to the Mossberg Owners Forum !!

I would suggest you replace the stock with a smaller LOP ( length of pull )...but that would not help your father any...unless of course the shotgun is now yours.
How are the scopes mounted? Are they are mounted directly to the receiver or to a picitinny rail? if they are mounted to a rail you might have some ability to slide them forward or back a bit.

If you don't want to relocate the scope, a shorter stock would be the way to go.

Cutting it down is one option. If you want to keep the original stock intact there are a lot of aftermarket options with shortened LOP or adjustible LOP depending on the style you prefer.
both guns have the scopes as far back on our rail as we can move them i forgot to mention that we are both shooting cantilever barrels i appreciate all the help you guys got any ideas were we could order shorter wood stocks? i seen the tactical stock on mossbergs website but i wood on my hunting guns
