Actually, I get bars cyclically alternating, one Gray, one that is the 
default color with EdgeForm[None], etc., consistent with what the 
Documentation says.

Use Directive if you want to apply all the styles to all the bars.

ChartStyle -> Directive[Gray, EdgeForm[None]]

BTW, it is helpful to include an example that people can copy/paste into 
a notebook and evaluate, so that they can see what you are talking about 
without having to make up their own example.
