Taya Kyle — widow of famed Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle — took part in the “American Sniper Shootout” on Saturday in order to raise money for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.

Kyle — using “a new computer-equipped rifle developed by TrackingPoint” reports Fox News — defeated reigning NRA world champion Bruce Piatt in a simulated war-game and raked in $500,000 in the process.

Thanks to her next-gen gear, Kyle even managed to nail a target from 2,100 yards — the same distance as her late husband’s famous shot in Sadr City, Iraq.
