Literally or figuratively?

similar scenario happened to me. i also grew 2 and a half inches that summer, doctors chocked it up to the lightning strike.

hope the guy has a speedy recovery. and i also would be interested to find out how the gun fared. be interesting to see if it was scorched, the electronics (if applicable) were fried or what have you.

Yall can crack all the jokes you want. That poor man is laying up in a hospital bed in denver in bad shape. He is active duty army and has this happen on his day off. I have heard a couple of things about what condition he's in and it's not good.
We will have a donation box at the C.O.D. game to see if we can help a local baller out.

Hi guys.
This ballerís on my team. Heís a good kid and a good friend. As Hooligan said, heís still in critical condition though he is getting better slowly. Weíre hoping for the best and he's a heck of a fighter. Your well wishes, Iím sure, are appreciated and will be forwarded to his family.
Regarding joking, people that arenít personally vested in the situation canít be expected to take EVERYTHING seriously and being struck by lightning is extremely rare so joking is to be expected.
To try to answer some questions, He usually uses an SP-1 and I believe he has it with him CO. Iím not sure of the type of barrel he uses though or the gunís current condition.

I'm curious as to how he was hit in the first place. Was it just out of the blue? Around here, the second we hear thunder we have to stop playing.
