    My wife frequently asks me who I was fighting a war with last night. What's that tell you? I storm the beaches and battle the Japs often.

    My best friend's uncle was sleep walking/drunk with his pistol and killed his wife when she tried to wake him in their kitchen. The deputies found him behind a tree on their property. He thought he was on guard duty from his days in Vietnam. When he got to the station he kept dialing his wife to come bail him out. Then he was told of the ordeal that got him arrested.He had no idea he killed his wife. He did some time for manslaughter charge and to this day you can see in his eyes he's got pain. Truly sad.
    As a Vet and someone who has worked for the VA I know PTSD can be a dangerous and very unhealthy thing.I wish he could have got more help for him and his family's sake.

    Jan-Mar of this year I attended a Citizens Police Academy one night a week. During a discussion on firearms safety, the Sgt instructor mentioned a similar scenario that he knew of, except the woman "answered" her firearm which was on the nightstand and DID pull the trigger! He suggested that you should have to perform 3 actions before accessing your firearm to ensure you are fully awake--such as get out of bed, open a drawer, rack the slide, or some other similar sequence. Even that might not work for the sleep walker types. Luckily, I am a very light sleeper and don't worry about it too much. My Kimber and SW 642 are in drawers in the night stand beside the bed. I have to roll over, open a drawer, and reach inside. I doubt I could ever do that without becoming fully awake.

    Generally speaking, my wife is a lighter sleeper than I am, though our ears are tuned differently.

    I think she could hear a baby whimper 50 yards away. A sudden wind hitting the house, a slight noise at the door and I'm immediately wide awake, we never "hear" the same thing.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I very seldom dream, or at least I don't remember most of them. I have on occasion, if the wife or anyone grabs or shakes me while I am asleep, attacked them, I have always stopped as soon as I get my wits about me, which doesn't take very long. My wife now hollers at me to wake up, she does not grab or shake anymore.

    My father once had a dream that he was fighting with somebody and punched my mother. She was not to happy to be awoken in the middle of the night with a punch.

    This thread is a bit spooky. I also have vivid dreams. And in very stressful times, I sleep walk. I've never even considered what that might mean with a weapon in the night stand.....but I am now.

    I don't keep a loaded firearm within reach because of my dreams. If I can put my wife in a headlock in my sleep, who knows what else I might do and not realise it?

    As others here, I have vivid dreams of combat and do not trust myself to keep a gun close to the bed. It is positioned so I must stand up and take a couple of steps and open a draw. I'm no sleep walker, and so far as I know have never moved a muscle during these dreams, but I don't want to take any chance.

    Very good subject. I could write a book about my dreams but I will spare all of you and not. I fell 14' from a ladder onto a concrete floor and didn't land on my melon but on my hands and knees in 2001 or there abouts. Ever since then I am afraid of heights and am clasaphobic. My dreams don't involve guns but how bad that experience hurt, and oh did it ever!

    I keep mine in a lock box next to the bed that requires me to punch in the right numbers, which is easy, but means I will be fully awake to be able to do it. You don't want to startle me if I"m sleeping...... I come up fighting. I have to take 3 steps to get to my knives, that's far enough that I 'will' be fully awake.
