Taya Kyle Wins the American Sniper Shootout with TrackingPoint Gun

Taya Kyle, widow of the American Sniper and Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, shows what the TrackingPoint gun is capable of by beating out world shooting champ Bruce Piatt.

In a charity event to raise funds for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, Taya was outfitted with TrackingPoint firearms outfitted with their proprietary computer aided targeting system.

See how she does on a moving silhouette from the prone position.

Both shooters took their turns on a service rifle, a marksman rifle and a sniper rifle. Their scores were tallied and at the end of the day, Taya had hit 100% of her targets, and world champ Bruce had fallen way behind.

Their respective scores from the event were 10,140 and 3,080. The TrackingPoint system gave Taya a major advantage during the fully concealed portion of the event by using TrackingPoint’s ShotGlass heads up display glasses.

Neither her nor Bruce had a direct line of sight on the target. Bruce was unable to make any of his shots while Taya hit 100%.

Ultimately, the point of this day wasn’t for Bruce to mount a real challenge to Taya, but rather raise the profile of TrackingPoint technologies as well as make the case for getting these weapons into the hands of our soldiers and first responders.

Anything that gives our armed forces an asymmetric advantage over the bad guys is good with me.
