    He was using military grade.

    The rifles she used range between 10k to 15k from Trackingpoint. I am sure that had a little to do with it. I have been hearing a lot about TrackingPoint lately, Id like to handle one and see what it's like.

    The technology is supposed to be pretty effective, this kind of backs that up.

    It shows that real marksmanship can be eliminated and we can be taught to rely on the technology.

    I think this is fascinating. She missed zero shots, scored perfect. All due to technology. That's pretty remarkable.

    NRA World Champion - who? Bruce Piatt

    Not to poo-poo the technology, but Bruce is not a champion long distance precision shooter.

    Also, Taya may be an accomplished shooter in her own right.

    Tech or not, you need trigger control.

    When we start setting the weapon on a robot, instead of the human, to control ignition of the cartridge, then I could possibly beat Bruce, after he runs a mile and has a pint of blood removed.
