Novice shooter Taya Kyle defeated reigning NRA champion Bruce Piatt and raised $500,000 for her husband’s charity by notching a perfect score at the shootout competition in Mason, Texas.
Kyle, who made 100 per cent of her shots for a total of 10,140 points, had a little bit of help…
The inexperienced markswoman used computer-equipped M600 and M800 rifles with precision-guiding technology that were made by TrackingPoint to defeat Piatt, Fox News reported.
The rifles, which were developed with input from Kyle’s husband, all feature ‘RapidLok Target Acquisition’ technology that automatically will acquire and track a target while the trigger is pulled.
