Taya Kyle, the wife of late “American Sniper” subject Chris Kyle, hit 100 percent of targets in a charity contest against NRA World Shooting Champion Bruce Piatt on Saturday in Mason, Texas. She was using a new computer-equipped rifle developed by TrackingPoint, earning $500,000 in the process for charity.
“Congratulations to Taya Kyle—American Wife on winning the American Sniper Shootout on Saturday!” TrackingPoint wrote on Facebook. “Armed with TrackingPoint precision-guided firearms, she nailed the competition and made 100% of her shots for a total of 10,140 points! We also raised $500,000 for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation! Special shoutout to Bruce Piatt for being such a gracious competitor. This would not have been possible without you!”
We profiled Taya Kyle’s emotional antelope hunt last year. Weatherby created this beautiful video, “He is With Me.”
According to Foxnews.com, “TrackingPoint says that its Precision-Guided Firearms can transform inexperienced shooters into world-class marksmen. To prove this claim, the company put $1 million on the table in an ultimate shootout. If the NRA champion Bruce Piatt could outshoot novice shooter Kyle then he would take home the hefty prize.”
