(NEWSER) – American Sniper author Chris Kyle wasn't the only badass sharpshooter in the family. His widow, Taya Kyle, showed up NRA World Shooting Champion Bruce Piatt at a charity shootout in Pflugerville, Texas, over the weekend, hitting 100% of her shots on 29 targets using TrackingPoint precision-guided firearms.
Piatt was apparently at a disadvantage using military-grade rifles carried by US troops in combat and hit just 59% of his shots amid explosions and simulated gunfire, per KHOU. Kyle tells Fox News her late husband spoke with the creators of TrackingPoint "about what goes into making a shot at such long distances with such precision" back in 2009. His insights helped shape the technology in TrackPoint's weapons that "does all the computations for you."
