    I have seen a few other threads about gun nightmares. A couple are on here now. In the other threads the person dreaming is in a position where something is wrong and they feel helpless (nightmare). In my gun dreams I always kill all the bad guys and I’m happy I did. Does anyone else have gun dreams where everything works and you win?

    Sort of. Before I got into firearms, I dismantled bad guys in my dreams with my bare hands. These days, it's about 50/50 firearms or bare hands.

    Either way, most the time after one of those dreams I wake up heart-pounding, furiously, unbelievably angry.

    It isn't a pleasant feeling.

    Sounds like you fell into a video game! :p I keep dreaming that I can't get my ccw out fast enough.

    Bout half and half. Half the time I win, the other half it feels like I am moving through Molassas. Horrible feeling, going as fast as you can and only managing slow motion.

    I remember I had one where I was holed up in some store (might've been a gunshop, I dunno) and I was under attack. The thing I really remember was that the handgun I was using seemed to have weight and substance (I think it was a Sig).

    Can go either way.

    Had a dream where I was part of a squad of modern infantry engaging a cohort of Romans.

    Does it show that the only video games I play regularly are Operation Flashpoint and Rome: Total War?

    Yes, it shows definatly those are the only games you play ;) Flashpoint is pretty slick too. Even at its venerable age anymore.

    Myself, firearms dreams are very wierd...

    I have gun dreams that usually piss me off. It seems that I am always facing an invasion or something and my guns are dismantled, unloaded or some other hooey. In real life I am good to go but in my dreams Im always way behind the power curve. Im always having to load mags! Why cant they be loaded already! God! :banghead:

    All my "fighting dreams" seem to be unarmed. Used to be that I'd whack at the bad guy helplessly, and he would think me punching him as hard as I can is the funniest thing in the world. But at some point in the last couple years, it changed to me beating the living crap out of them. Dunno why.

    Only gun dream I remember is where I come home to find out that I've been burglarized and all of my firearms are gone. I felt so sick knowing that some thugs were out there with my firearms. I woke up and had to sit there for a few minutes.

    the only dream that I can remember involving firearms was just after my son got the resident evil game, we played it all afternoon and that night I dreamed about being in the game, I kept shooting but they would not die..... :eek:

    I had this dream that I brought home a new 1911 and my wife got angry I didn't get her one, too, so I had to run out and buy another one for her...

    I don’t have many gun related dreams. The only one I can remember was half gun related and half Terminator 2 related. Remember that scene where John Connor and Arnie unearth the arsenal owned by that Mexican guy in the desert? In my dream it was my father and I who were in that scene. I don’t remember what happened after that very well, but I am sure we gave the T1000 a run for his money.

    I have been messing around with Doom3 for Xbox a little...and my dreams last night were seriously disturbed. Even worse, the recurring dream of a 500 lb. trigger pull made its way in. Pretty red-eyed today....!

    Doom3 was a pretty good game (played it on PC), very atomospheric...not as great as I was hoping.
    I can see it giving someone bad dreams. ^.^

    I dreamed the other night that I was mixed up in some serious business, the dream started bizarre and then got more realistic, then I got out of the 'serious business' and I still had this G-36 that I had swiped off someone. I was home and looking over it and I saw that besides 'safe' and 'fire' there was a third selection possible. I realized that I had come out off all that safe and sound AND aquired a select-fire G-36! JUST at this pivotal "WOOHOO!" moment, I woke up.

    Holy Crap

    It is so funny that you mentioned this. I had a nightmare about a week ago that involved me and my beloved Kahr P9. I was right outside my house on the street and dreamt that someone was trying to run me over. I shot at them but my gun would not reload and I have to manually pull my slide back each time in order to shoot. I was running, reloading, and shooting. Scary and a little odd becuase my Kahr never misfires or has any FTE. Wierd :scrutiny:

    i had a really interesting dream last night...

    i was at my grandparents' house, with a few other people over for dinner or somthing. it was daylight throughout the whole dream. there were some bad guys intent on killing, stealing, or whatever. the dream is a bit fuzzy, but i remember some. first there was a guy or two in the house, and i had a gun on me, i don't remember what. i shot him, filled him up with lead, and i think he was still alive. either way, he left. then i was outside, waiting for the people to come up again. they came up, four of them, in a light gray SUV. i had 3 guns on me. a ruger GP100 .357 magnum, a 1911 .45, and a .380 auto Bersa Thunder (i think) i pulled out the 1911, which had wooden checkered grips and a satin stainless steel finish. the 1911 felt nice in my hand very reassuring.. i shot at all the four people thorugh the car/windows. i don't recall any noise, recoil, ejected shells, or even bulletholes.two people died, the other two wouldn't. i took out my .380 auto, and plugged all the rounds into the main guy's chest, who had gotten out of the car, which out my seeing him do so. (i don't know how i knew he was the main guy, he just was). again, no blood, bulletholes, spent shells, recoil, or noise. he hit me, or shot me, or maybe he didn't do anything, but then i found myself back inside, and i looked at my right leg- there was my holstered .45 that i didn't use! (yea, i know i used it on the car, but dreams are messed up like that, you know?) i recall using the .357, but i can't remember exacly when. i think it was outside, used on the other guy that didn't die. ( i think he still lived after i shot him)

    and that's it. it would have been more fun if they died, i remembered more, and i had clips to reload the .45. i'll show that bitch who's boss!...

    Just last night I dreamed I was at some persons house and there were a few more people there, from this site. I didn't know anyone, even the one who knew me and was introducing me. I had already (previously in the dream) pocketed a pair of little semiautomatic pistols and I had a snubby little revolver hidden somewhere on me. For some reason I had camo pants and a camo jacket, and the pistols (around medium small glock size but more sculpted looking especially around the grips and frame, proportionally sort of like a USP but again, smaller than one) were camo painted too, I had one in an inner pocket on the left side and one in an outer side of the jacket. One came out to show to a someone, and I tried to rack the slide to show the fellow that there was no round in the chamber (what I always do when handing someone a gun) but I apprently pressed the takedown lever and not the slide release lever while I was racking it because the slide moved back a bit and then raised off the gun and stuck, and he had to fix it. I explained that I had never used the gun yet, and one of the guys handed me a holster for it, he was one of the holster makers on this site and it was some kind of gift, it was black leather and made for outer wear, sort of like military pistol holsters with the flap, but not as heavy and smaller. It was actually pretty cool. Then we got dust or cookie crumbs or whatever on the carpet and I went asking the owner of the house where he had a dirt devil or something, and while we were getting it I woke up.

    I searched around and found a pic of the gun that I think they were. No idea why it was in my dream, I've never even really looked at this model, but now that I've felt one in my hands and seen it up close (ok, in a dream) and looked at it awake online, it does look kind of nice. ;) I found the picture AFTER I wrote the description of it btw.
