My legs still worked, so I walked next door to the nurses office, and when she started to examine me, I shocked the crap out of her. I was sore for days, but mostly ok.
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.
