God bless your friend fubsy ... keep him safe and grant him a swift recovery.

Just goes to show that what happens in a real fight is that good people get hurt ...

thankyou,....there is interesting hindsight here......
1. its the gun you have on you that will save your life....not the one near you. How many times have we all heard that?...its still true.
2. try to get seperation when appropriate.
3. If possible, improvise anything for a weapon.
4. the mind does crazy things under stress, such as forgetting the 2nd back up is in your pockett, or the pistol your going to is down for repairs, or on the work bench near the desk is a loaded beretta 92fs. No matter how dire the situation dont quit fighting. Also that you have been stabbed and not slashed. And Im sure they'll be more to pop up.
5. After you have survived the immediate outcome of the fight....you have to survive the injuries, plan on an income till your well, your obligations will continue. Clean up your store and prepare to reopen. And answer endless question by caring concerned and nosey friends..lol...
Also to deal with the aftermath of the trauma, ..........say a prayer for the kid and his suffering parents, and give thanks that the sword was really not a "samuri" sword as the press reported, but a straight bladed knock-off "ninja" type, wereas if the blade had been a curved Katana, the withdrawl during the struggle might have destroyed some internal organs and finished what the kid started.
this type of tragedy effects you in many ways.....every time he will take his shirt off there will be visible reminders---but he is adaptable and strong individual, he is recovering fine and thankyou all for the prayers and best wishes. .....fubsy.....
