A charity event that would test the sharpshooting skills of a challenger against reigning NRA champion Bruce Piatt was held recently in Texas, and guess who took the role of challenger?
The event was called the “American Sniper Shootout,” and Taya Kyle, widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle, took on Piatt in a shootout that featured some excellent Hollywood-like special effects.
Taya Kyle pulled out all the stops to win the event too, sporting a new hi-tech, computer equipped rifle, which helped her achieve a shot similar to the famous one her husband nailed as depicted in the movie American Sniper.
Via Fox News Insider:
The widow of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle put her sharpshooting skills to the test in an “American Sniper Shootout” for charity.
Taya Kyle challenged reigning NRA champion Bruce Piatt to the competition in Central Texas.
The competition was set up as a war-like scenario, complete with exploding cars and other special effects.
For the contest, Taya used a new computer-equipped rifle developed by TrackingPoint, which fires the weapon for the user when the crosshair lines up with the target, and which Kyle says could be a lifesaver on the battlefield.
Using that technology she was able to defeat Piatt, even at a distance of 2100 yards — the same distance Chris Kyle successfully hit an enemy insurgent in Sadr City, Iraq, famously depicted in the film “American Sniper.”

The event raised about half-a-million dollars for charity, and successfully demonstrated unmatched American firepower.
