    That's a very common dream that police have. That and being in a fight but unable to throw punches or moving very slowly. Get some more range time in, they will go away. :wavey:

    Seriously- it means you are paranoid and thinking about the subject too much. You need to maybe practice some more or get some additional training to the point of relaxing that notion in your head.

    Weak libido?


    :tongueout:

    I'd say everyone has those dreams of some sort. Being chased by the boogieman and running your hardest, but not getting anywhere. Throwing Mike Tyson hailmaker bombs with no effect, etc.

    I use to have dreams where I needed to protect family or whoever and I couldn't pull the trigger, I couldn't load the weapon, I moved extremely slow. In the instances where a hand to hand fight insued, I moved slow and couldn't throw or connect punches.

    I haven't had any in a while, but I always thought they were very weird.

    I get the slow punches dream a lot. I hate it. :rofl:

    I also get the super hot make believe GF, which is equally aggrivating. :whistling:

    I used to have those dreams. I pull the trigger and click, tap rack click. tap rack bang but it only affects the guy like a BB gun. then click.

    I bought a couple glocks and the dreams went away:whistling:

    I have never, personally, met any gun owner who had even the slightest self-defense mind-set that didn't have that dream. I've had this same conversation with dozens of friends.

    I'd say that makes it pretty normal.

    I have these drams on occasion. I pull the gun out, realize that the floor plate on the magazine is larger than it should be, pull the trigger, hear the dry fire sound...the primer doesn't go off. Chamber a new round, same deal. Chamber a third...jam.

    The 50lb trigger plagues my dreams. Sometimes I have to use both left and right fingers to make it fire!

    I have had those same dreams too. When I finally got the pistol to fire, the bullets wouldn't penetrate, they would just stick to the B/G's clothing!
