    How strange...I have the fail to hit dreams no matter how many rounds go downrange but I wake up having bad feelings about the rest of the day.

    Had that dream one night before I woke for work...got into a shooting later that night with a vehicle travelling over 120MPH trying to run me down and 6 of my 7 shots struck the vehicle...one striking suspect 1/4 above bridge of nose. One shot went high and into a field never to be found.

    Of the seven shots, only one struck the suspect and it worked in stopping the threat, the irony is, I still have those dreams sometimes and I still sleepwalk and talk. Sometimes I have to sleep on the couch becuase wifey gets armbarred or kicked in her sleep by me. On those nights, it seems that I have the dreams and then I am super vigilant at work.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one having these weird dreams and subconscious fears!

    Guns fires, but bullets don't seem to travel at enough velocity to penetrate the individual.

    The last one I had was weapon failed to fire with trigger pulled numerous times. I also go to the range and practice, practice, practice. Or rounds hit and have no effect on subject. I hate those dreams. I have no problem with fighting in my dreams or apprehension of suspect but.

    How many have actually fired the M-26 tazer? That's what the trigger is like in my dreams, and I'm close enough that the barrel is inches away from the suspects face and the bullets bounce off of them.....scary stuff.

    Then, after the first time the $#@& decocking lever slid forward in the holster, causing me to draw and squeeze a de-cocked, safe trigger on the range, because it had inadvertently placed the gun on "safe," I constantly had that reoccur in a real gunfight in my dreams.
    Never cared for automatics since.
    The 686 "L" frame was the best revolver ever made. We transitioned to
    the 5906 in the late 80's and it was the worst thing that could have
    happened. Accuracy and proficiency dropped big time. When we were
    later permitted the option of carrying a .40 or .45, I bought a 4046 and
    have been happy since then. Although I miss target sights, the DAO pull
    feels about the same as my old 686.

    I had a dream the other night where I opened the door to a room so two other cops could do the shooting and afterwards one of them threw up on me. I could taste it in my dream, LOL.

    I pull the trigger and "click"...I tap and rack..."click"...tap and rack..."click"...its a terrible feeling. Going to the range usually helps, but I must have had that dream about a dozen times.

    I never would have brought up the heavy trigger pull dream except that someone started this thread. It freaks me out, I've had it several times. I'm normally a good shot, but in the dream I can barely squeeze the trigger and when I do get a shot off, it's horribly inaccurate. I wonder what the significance IF ANY of these dreams are? Any Police Psychologists on this site???

    Haven't had the fail to fire dream yet. Most of mine are like movie shootouts ??? I one shot everyone center of mass and they automatically go straight down. And yeah, I know that's really what happens...

    The gun ALWAYS jams in mine. Luckily, the bad guys gun jams too. Both of us are standing there, trying to clear he jam. I usually end up hitting them with something.

    I get the one where my rifle barrel is bent for some reason, and I have to hold it sideways to hit the suspect.

    Also, I have one where I am trying to reload my off duty revolver, and there are bullets of all different calibers laying all over the ground. I struggle to pick up different bullets and try to get them to fit into my .357 while being shot at.

    In my dreams the trigger is always mush and I have to squeeze harder to fire.

    I also have heavy trigger pull dream. I have had that one many times but one time I was trying to shoot, get this, Fred Sanford! He was a dick and pulled a gun on me during a car stop. After my gun wouldnt fire he shot me but missed. Then I woke up. "I'm coming Elizabeth"

    I'm betting the underlying significance for LEO's when it comes to dreams of shooting and violence are different than that the average person.
