5.56 Timeline


Some people just don’t want to let go. One man found our just how attached to him his GF was when he tried to break it off with her. turns out she was nuts. A whole bag of crazy you could say.

An Illinois woman stabbed her boyfriend’s genitals last month because he tried to break up with her, police said Wednesday.

The 43-year-old boyfriend told police he had tried to break up with his 30-year-old girlfriend and she apparently refused.

The woman grabbed the man in a “bear hug,” from which he broke free, said Decatur Police Officer Tim Wittmer. She then grabbed her boyfriend’s genitals and began to “pull and tug at these body parts to the point that it was painful,” Wittmer added.

She did not take the break up well. So she did the only thing she could think of to win him back. Castration. Not satisfied with having his balls in her purse figuratively, she attempted an impromptu vasectomy.

The boyfriend felt a “very sharp pain” and “observed a large laceration on his scrotum area,” Wittmer said. He added that the wound was “five to six (inches) in length” and “half-an-inch deep.” lol sure pal, sure. Then again.. maybe that’s why she didn’t want to let him go.

Hey, I know you are upset but no need to hit below the belt like that. Women, always wanting to take half your stuff amirite?


S&W Model 19-5 PawnShop Find

Every now and again you can walk into a pawn broker and come across some nifty little pieces for dirt cheap. Last summer I was in the local gunstore/pawnshop with my Dad and he saw this little S&W and asked me to buy it for him. I couldn’t say no to him so I did end up buying it. He carried it in his tackle box when fishing a few times then when he became to ill to even go fishing anymore, it ended up back with me.

As you know, I’m not much of a revolver guy and I still struggle to shoot them well. Even with all the helpful tips from commenters with more experience and love for the 6 shooter. Shooting nothing by the 1911 for 34 years will make a DA revolver trigger seem like hell. I shot this one DA from bench and bags from 20 yards to do my best with it. Loads were a couple different Federal loads of 357 magnum. I feel I did pretty good considering me and DA revolvers are like a monkey doing a math problem.

The after market safari-land larger grips made the gun easier to shoot for me. I loathe the tiny factory wood grips these guns usually have. I’m guessing I’m not alone in that. These are pretty comfy for me though the wood doesn’t soak up the full power magnum rounds recoil very well. The blued finish on the gun is still ( not NRA grading) excellent. Those older Smiths did have some handsome finish. The adjustable sights was one of the main selling points to make me agree to buy it. They are easy to use and see. No surprise there since S&W has been using them since dirt was young.

It’s a pretty neat little gun for a used pawn shop gun find. What I will do with it I have no idea. Probably trade it in on another 1911 some day.
