In "American Gun", the deadliest sniper in U.S. history tracks down and shoots the most important American firearms, from a flintlock rifle to a Colt revolver to the latest high-tech weapon he used as a SEAL. Chris Kyle uses these guns as a window on United States history, making the sweeping argument that the American story has been tied to and shaped by the gun.
Chris Kyle, Navy SEAL sniper. RIP. The gold colored objects on top of his casket are Navy SEAL insignia badges pounded by hand into the lid of his casket by his fellow SEAL's. There's more than 100 of them here; the most know to have been placed on a single casket.
