I am gonna pre-empt any Freudian comments on impotency or erectile disfunction - this isn't what I am posting about (I hope!) Over the years, I have nightmares sometimes where my family and friends, or myself, are in danger, and I always acquire a gun (or one of my own guns) somehow and try to stop the attacker, but sometimes the trigger is too heavy to pull, or I shoot them repeatedly with no effect, or even if I put the gun against their head, they won't die or stop. The bullets just don't work. I wake up and feel pretty ****ty and nervous, like I can't just shake the feeling of not being able to protect myself or my family. I feel like I need to go to a gun range and perfect my aim and assure myself I can still shoot straight. I realize this all sounds like an elaborate metaphor for sexual disfunction but I'm asking a serious question. Anyone else have dreams like this, that rattle your confidence and sense of safety?
