As dandy a triumvirate of purpose driven guns as I could imagine. More chapters to come, no doubt.

SG or PG? That's a tough one. As a general rule I would say I prefer a PG but the straight stock works with this one. And yes, the CHE has a vent rib and a single trigger. The CHE is choked Mod (.020) and Light Full (.030). It's suppose to be a back up to my GHE but she's out of commission at the moment, so the CHE is now in the starting lineup. The GHE and CHE are virtually identical, except for the triggers.

Does the CHE have vent rib I cannot remmember ? Since I got the VHE 32” vent rib trap I’ve kinda gotten back into the single trigger mode a bit . Well it and the two VHE skeet guns . I usually shoot them pretty decent .
