I sleep with my Glock 26 near my pillow. I don't keep a round in battery. Well this morning I was dreaming about it and I found myself at about 5am, half asleep---truly, I had dropped the magazine, pulled the slide back several millimeters, depressed the release tabs and pulled off the slide, ALL WHILE BASICALLY ASLEEP, I think I was dreaming about cleaning my Glock and it of course happened... I didn't notice what I was doing until I had it apart and I was fully awake
Anyone else have this happen?

Well I knew someone would ask that question. Honestly I wasn't actually asleep, just sort of half awake. And it an issue of me worrying about the lubrication before I fell asleep. I'm not worried about it, I've slept with my gun next to me for decades and I have common sense even if I am half asleep

Sleepwalking and guns is bad juju bro. Same problem here. And since I keep a round chambered, I keep my gun in the bottom drawer of my dresser with the drawer shut. Forcing me to get out of bed, and walk a few steps and bend over to open said drawer to retrieve it.

Hopefully by that time I'm fully awake, because my wife sleeps right next to me. Tread lightly with this. It's more serious than you think.

Ask me how I know :holysheep:

Well currently I am single, so I sleep alone. I can only imagine how this would freak out a girlfriend or wife
But I may begin placing it away from my bed at least far enough that I have to be awake to access it

Several minutes??
Elaborate please.. Inquiring minds want to know.
Bedroom on second floor and is not as accessible as other rooms,alarms, dog and several other situations which I care not to discuss impede progress, firearms are located throughout the home which only I can access.

Holy Sheep Dip man that can lead to serious problems.
Like someone said what if you dreamed about shooting, some intruder in the house? Neighbors probably would not like it.
My pistol is in the night stand with a flashlight, and I sleep very light.
On the other hand my Wife's pistol is on the shelf in the closet. Her flashlight is on the nightstand.

Doesn't everyone sleep with their guns loaded either under their pillow or right next to their bed? I always have
I have guns nearby. I also don't screw with them asleep, half-awake, or fully conscious. If I did, they would either be kept unloaded with the mag nearby or kept in a biometric or combo safe. Not just laying out so I could blow my head off half-asleep.

Reconsider your situation.

Ok going to buy a biometric or combination locked box today to install next to my bed. Although I've slept with my guns for years I agree this was weird,(I've never disassembled it in my sleep! ) have to change things thanks everyone

Sounds like a safe is a good solution to me.

Zolpidem induced gun cleaning can get you or others around you killed.
