Help me finish a dream - T-REX headshot. Feel free to laugh

I've had this recurring dream for several years now. It's very "Journey to the Center of the Earth", before I even knew what the book was. I have a hole that I need to fill in.

A group of people find a pond at the the side of a mountain with a mineshaft next to it. The pond green and mossy, and goes under the rock wall. They jump in and travel to the other side of the wall. The next little bit is never there, and the next thing I dream is that they are being chased out of the mineshaft by a T-REX.

The first few times I had the dream I just drowned the T_REX in the pond, but that doesn't work anymore.

So, somehow we go from running around near the mountain to the city, and they are near a mall. The main character is a jumper, the kind that jumps from one building to another, off of stuff. He is chased by the T-REX, and jumps through a Burger King, and onto a yellow with black hood modified Neon, the first gen, not the newer ones. Noel Gugilemi is driving the car. The Latino asks the guy what he's doing on his car, and the jumper guy points behind him at the T-REX chasing them down. They speed away towards the city.

This is where it stops. Since I can kinda change the dream as it happens, I was thinking about having another one of the people who jumped into the water being the survivalist guy, and having him run into the mall. Now, what does he do? I was thinking he runs to a sporting goods store and grabs a used rifle and a box of ammo. Sets up on the roof of the mall. The T-REX is running down a narrow straight street, and he can see his misses, and he gets the last bullet into the back of the T-REX head.

How does this sound, and what does he use?

I can't believe I read your entire post. I also can't believe I'm responding to it. That being said I just read a post by Kirby. He just built the perfect gun for this shot. A 73" oal - 45" barrel 510 Allen mag. It pushes a 750 grain bullet with 16000 pounds of energy at the muzzel. You should have him build you one.

What Lara does is go up into the cave and get the first aid kit and shotgun shells and then she jumps down out of the cave to attract his attention. She then runs back and climbs up into the cave and shoots him with a 9mm when he appears. Alternatively, she can jump up on a ledge on the mountain but if she misses her jump she is chow mien.

Sorry, I am jetlagged and only on 4 hours of sleep.

T-Rexes have been unavailable for 65,000,000 years. I can't get my mind around 65 million years. I get a headache just trying to conceive of such a vast length of time.

We humans have been around for about 40,000 years. Do the math, and dream about something else.

Now headshots on prairie dogs? That's doable.

It's not something I want to do, but it's just this reoccuring dream that I want to put a good end to so I can dream about something better.
