It's not often we get to hear from an American hero about the products that excite him at SHOT Show. Navy SEAL sniper and author Chris Kyle was kind enough to talk with us for a few minutes. Kyle is not only proficient in the use of firearms, he is a true gun enthusiast and an NRA Life Member. He's been shooting since he was six years old, though he admits his shotgun skills need some work as he did not use them in the Navy. He made copious use of rifles, however.
