This "little man" and all who know him knows what he is really made of now - some people go their whole lives without finding out. I hope he makes a fully recovery both physically and mentally. Even though he is regarded a hero, this could be very traumatic for him.
This just reinforces why its important to teach firearms safety and usage to all members of the family if possible. Maybe my wife will never learn but my son sure as hell will.
The kid did good. Hope he makes a full recovery.

Congrats to this young man for courage, too bad the parent couldn't have joined the 'battle'...

Good for him!
I hope he has no lasting injuries.
If anybody is interested,I'm going to try to find out who the family is and contact the parent/s to see if there is something that the boy would like that they can't afford like maybe a playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii,I think it would be great if members from a Defensive Carry website could say you did good and hope this makes your recovery a little more bearable

Somebody buy that kid a week-long, all-expenses-paid trip to Disney, and a new dirt bike, and anything else he wants. What an incredible young man! What a hero!
Seriously, when you find out the info, please PM me. I would love to contribute.

It can be hard to tell when a child is ready for a little more gun. I am going to go out on a limb a guess this young man is ready for a nice 30-30.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
Bravo Zulu to that Young Man! I hope there are no lasting pain or nightmares for him or his Momma.
Hope his attacker meets a wonderful new room-mate in his new residence!

I hope my children can be that prepared if the sittuation ever presents itself. Pray for the best, prepare for the worst. That includes children. I doubt that that dad could be more proud of his son.
