I have been having strange shooting dreams for a few weeks now.
The first dream: was I walked in on two men robbing our home and I shot both of them. (I’m working on getting a carry permit for a handgun). I was shaken up by this dream!
The second dream: My husband and I had dinner at a cafe in a town I didn’t reconize. As we walked back to our car, two men (again) were trying to break into our car! When my husband confronted one of the men, he shot him. (I called my husband at work that morning to make sure he was alright.)
The third dream: happened on Tuesday of this week. I dreamt someone (a man) shot at my sister. The doctor didn’t think she would survive, but she did! (I called her to make sure too!)
I would like to know why I keep having this same dream and what could it mean? Another detail, I don’t get a good clear look at the faces of the men, but they don’t seem to be family memebers or anyone I know.
Thanks for your help!

To see a shooting in your dream, indicates that you have a set goal and know what to aim for in life. Your plans are right on target!
To dream that you shoot a person with a gun, denotes your aggressive feelings and hidden anger toward that particular person.
If the person you shoot is a stranger, then it indicates that you are rejecting unknown aspects of yourself that you do not understand.
To dream that someone is shooting you with a gun, suggests that you are experiencing some confrontation in your waking life. You may be feeling victimized in some situation.
This is what dreammoods.com says dreaming about shooting means. Hope that helps!

@MissBoPeep–LOL! That’s the same site I went on last night to look my dreams up! That’s so funny! I read that, but I’m still curious as to the true underlying cause of me having the dream. Maybe I’m reading too much into this dream????

If I had to guess I would say you’ve got guns on the brain because you’re working on getting a carry permit for a handgun. Things from real life always have the strangest way of working themselves into my dreams!

I sort of think some of those dream interpretations are BS because everyone has different feelings about certain situations. I would assume you are dreaming about shootings because of your gun permit, and it is something that is on your mind. Perhaps you’re worried about actually having to use your gun or it falling into the wrong hands?
I’d be inclined to think the shooting dreams are about fear, in one way or another. Maybe you’re scared to lose your family (who isn’t?)?Or something along those lines.

I agree with PinkBG, I think your dreams are just because you have guns on the brain. Your mind is probably trying to work through all the situations you’re fearing you may find yourself in one day now that you are actively seeking to carry.
I’m actually planning on getting my permit soon too. May I ask how you plan on carrying?

dpham67 I plan to carry mine either in my purse or in the car. If I go anywhere, I plan to carry right on my side just like my cell phone.
I’m going to add this for everyone: I was always afraid of guns. Seriously. I couldn’t look at a gun in the gun case without running the other way. I couldn’t even pick up an UNLOADED gun without freaking out. Until I met my husband….He is the one who gave me one of his hand guns and said “We gotta do this.” He knew my fears and yet he took me on! and guess what? I DID it! I was able to shoot a whole clip without running away in fear! I felt like I was POWERFUL! I have since overcome my fear (that would explain wanting the permit)
