Thinking about getting a 332. Fits really well with standard pad, could possibly be 1/4" longer. How well does the standard pad work, and if not very well, what brand and model pad do you suggest? And how hard does this gun kick with 3" shells? I am used to a 12 gauge Franchi with 2 3/4" magnum duck loads, no pad, recoil operated, 6.25 lbs gun weight-should I expect more or less kick? Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
