Chris Kyle’s widow speechless at what was presented to her at SHOT show in Vegas

Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, got a huge surprise Friday at the Las Vegas SHOT Show.

She signed a replica of the McMillan .338 Lapua sniper rifle her late husband used in combat to be raffled off by the non-profit organization AmericanSnipers.org, which provides gear to military snipers, according to Jason Howerton of The Blaze, who covered the event.

The group raised $62,000 from the Kyle replica and other firearms it raffled. Then, without warning, organizers turned around and gave the money to Taya Kyle.

“Now I don’t have words,” she said. “Thank you, I don’t even know what to say. It’s a bittersweet journey, obviously. And I do feel Chris with me, but I’m also very aware, as I know Debbie is too, that physically we all want him here.”

“The generosity — to me it’s less about the money and more about the support,” she continued. “The idea that people still care and love what Chris stood for and love him.”
