    had this dream where someone broke into my house, and i went to shoot them, but couldn't pull the trigger.
    they then grabbed the barrel, so i gotta practice... keeping it out of their hands?

    Maybe you should just sleep with a holster on so you can carry a backup gun.

    i have dreams of loooong trigger pulls.

    i've probably had 4 of them in the past 6 months.

    the scenario is me shooting a BG cuz he's trying to rob me, and me trying to pull this quadruple action trigger to down him :rofl:
     
  4. I, too, have had similar dreams. Where is Freud when you need him?

    when i first started driving, i had a (similar) recurring dream- i was in a car, and i couldn't hit the brake, because it gave too much resistance, and i ended up rear ending the car infront of me

    this sucks- the whole reason i got into guns was because i wanted to relieve the anxiety of being unprepared. i never used to have bad dreams about it!

    I've had ones where my reloads were all crumbly like old play-dough.

    then you're a lucky goose.
    it was wake up call (no pun intended) that i need to get real training, and i need to drill it often. drilling stuff i read about, or watch on youtube just isn't enough.

    this!:hs: I still have that dream from time to time. like i'll be driving down a hill or across the street, and i'll hit the brake but i'll just slow down a lil and keep going through a red light, or into a car, or into a baby. :o i think its fear of not doing it right when the time comes

    I have similar dreams. instead of struggling to pull the trigger, I find I'm shooting hilariously obsolete pre civil war .50+ caliber rimfire ammo, and the round always travels only a couple feet before it falls to the ground or bounces off my attacker.

    fucking dream sucks
