A firearm is associated with danger, aggression, killing and hatred. This is why the dream of a gun is interpreted as a bad omen for the future. Unless it has a sexual aspect - then the dream takes on new meaning.
- If the dreamer sees a gun, it is a signal, that for some reason their environment will be hostile to them.
- Holding the gun in the hand may mean that some of things got out of control.
- Reloading the weapon is a warning against losing control and releasing anger. This is the last call to regain self-control and withdraw from some conflict.
- If you shoot at someone in a dream, it reflects your repressed emotions: anger, rage, hatred against that person. The nightmare is usually caused by a subconscious desire for revenge; the desire to remove this man from your life or to injure that person.
- Shooting a pistol suggest that the recently undertaken investment will fail.
- The nightmare, in which a friend is aiming at you or shooting at you, should be treated as a warning of danger. To some extent, the risk may be associated with the attacker, but it is often a metaphor for other problems.
- When the dreamer has been shot, it means that one has a bad opinion of oneself; is tormented by remorse. The nightmare also heralds a major psychological shock in the coming days.
- The gun is a phallic symbol, so the dream about a rifle, a revolver or a shotgun may mean a sexual intercourse. In this context bullets are the symbol of sperm and illustrate orgasm.
- If in a dream you cannot hit the target or the gun is jammed, it reflects your helplessness.
- If you cannot find a gun in your dream, it refers to the trouble with taking control of your real life.
- The sound of a shooting of the gun is a warning. Someone will try to prejudice your interests or hurt you in personal matters.
- Seeing ammunition in a dream suggests that you too often use your power and contacts to achieve your own goals.
- A dream about the use of gun at the shooting range encourages relieving your negative feelings and frustrations in a safe and controlled way. Going to a shooting range is a good idea, but you can also do this by signing up for the gym or jumping with a parachute. Alternatively, if the dreamer is at the range and hits the target, then the dream reflects determination and well chosen way of life.
- A machine gun suggests the lack of control over your emotions.
