Default manual Shifting issue? if you can call it that.

does this happen to anybody else? you go to shift and randomly it will not go into the gear you want it to? like going from neutral to 1st sometimes my truck will go up and stop then i have to go back to Neutral and put it back in first and it usually goes the 2nd or 3rd time. It doesnt do it very often but still...should i be worried?

I bet you might have an air bubble in your line. The bubble is prolly moving back and fourth and once in a while is causing a problem.

It's normal, they syncros don't always line up right. Release the clutch and push it back in or try putting into reverse before putting it back into 1st. I've seen it on more than one vehicle and different makes, so it's normal.

pretty normal.....might not hurt to check the fluid level, maybe a drain and fill?.and check the reservoir?
