    So does mine except usually it is a really long trigger on my glock or the barrel is so short I can fire right or something stupid like that.

    In my dreams my trigger is always broken. Kind of like a cheap toy gun with a broken trigger.

    Wow, we could get all kinds of Freudian on this!
    In mine the issue is usually an extremely target rich environment and a shortage of weapon compatible ammo. (Boxes of .45 all over the place and I have a 9mm etc.)

    For the same reason people who speak in public have dreams about giving a speach naked. It's what you are worried about. It all filters into your dreams. Or, it is your subconscious mind working out a solution to a problem you've been dealing with.

    Are you concerned about your G19 mis-firing? If so, shoot it more and become more confident with it.

    Agreed. I stopped having dreams like that years ago. My wife says I get eerily calm in the worst stressful situations. The more dangerous/stressful the situation...the slower everything gets around me.

    Of course, afterwards when I have time to evaluate everything and think of all of the possible outcomes, thats when I get an adrenaline dump need a moment to sit down. Sometimes it happens as long as a day or so later.

    I guess as a father..I still list the worst being when my 2 yr old daughter was choking on something. Its even hard to explain...with all of my years of CPR and first aid training I almost lost her. She turned blue and went limp in my arms as I tried to clear her airway. I had reached that critical point of no return and had to try a last ditch effort. Thankful I was able to dislodge the article of food and she is fine today. But I often think back to how controlled I was during those moments and how I was a wreck in the moments after when I heard her cry and knew she was ok. The flood of emotions ajd the adrenaline dump were intense to say the least. Talk about dreams? I sometimes still dream about that day and the outcome in my dreams is every fathers worst nightmare. That's what I sometimes dream about.

    Sorry for the mini vent.

    In my dreams, which I've been having for decades, the trigger is always impossible to pull, no matter how hard I try. It's always with a revolver and I see the hammer trying to arc back but just not quite getting there. That's why I carry an automatic.

    They always misfire in your dreams to scare the crap out of your subconscious and drill maintenance into you.

    I have the same thing!! It's always too hard to pull, and by the time I do get the thing to go off, the target is definitely not in the sights.

    But I've also had the same dream where I'm armed with a shotgun and use cover, etc. Everything is in color and it's been at 2 of the 3 places I've lived the last decade...VERY VERY REAL.

    In many of my dreams the guns work but the bullets just bounce off or barely stick to the bad guy.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!
