    That happens to me but not with guns. I am trying to throw punchs and as I get closer and closer to actually striking the person I am punching I dramaticly slow down somehow and my punch turns into a tap. very frustrating dream lol.

    ^^ I used to have the same one, no matter how hard I threw the punch it was always a soft hit that was usually ignored. Always woke up furious from those dreams!

    Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I'm afraid to be violent!

    I used to have that dream, but then I retired my old 380 for a 45. Lol

    In all seriousness, what does it mean if you don't remember your dreams?

    I know I need more training and more practice. I don't need dreams to tell me this.

    Is there such a thing as enough training or practice?

    Probably. On the physical side, overtraining leads to injuries and sleep issues. In my youth when I was lifting a lot I could tell by my sleep habits when it was time to back off. Given that shooting is a mind game I would think the ability to concentrate might become an issue. The problem is, everyone is different with different capacities and until we get close to the edge we don't what our capacities are. This is why keeping a training record (preferably video) is important. Over a period of time patterns will emerge and we can see when we start to go off the track.

    I thought about my reply and because I'm not in LE or a soldier and not submersed in violence, I would not be having these types of dreams. If his intended audience are LEOs and soldiers, I might see the pertinence. I do think it's a bit over the top for the average carrier.

    Congratulations on the opening of your mind. I don't think that he's a "nut job", either. "[He] helped train mental health professionals after the Jonesboro school shootings, and he was also involved in counseling or court cases in the aftermath of the Paducah, Springfield, Littleton, Virginia Tech, and Nickel Mines Amish school shootings."

    The nightmares may be inklings of inadequacies trying to reconcile in one's mind. I don't have nightmares of these inadequacies. I train within Los Angeles County's legal limits. I have a true and accurate assessment of my own limitations. I think that's key.

    I ought to train for the day that CCW is no longer prohibited to me, here, and it is available as in right-thinking locations. That's no dream. I like my old boss's poster, "Planning without acting is dreaming. Acting without planning is a nightmare".
    Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force

    Here is more from Grossman

    If you dream that your gun doesn't work, it means your midbrain, your unconscious mind, is worried and wants you to train more. Take it to the range and train until it is confident. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, The Bullet Proof Mind seminar (paraphrased)

    I have had those dreams and it always motivates me to kick up the training. Oddly enough I'll have the dream about midway through training courses as well.
