I am relatively new to handguns and my dad loaned me his H&R .22 revolver that he hadn't shot in years to use at the range. My intention was to let my son try to shoot a handgun for the first time and I'm not quite ready for him to try out my G19. The revolver is probably 40 years old or maybe even more. I bought some CCI 21 grain "Short range green, 22 long rifle lead-free hollow point" to shoot through it. It holds 9 rounds and it was not firing on about 2 of those. There was also one shot in which it seemed like gunpowder sprayed both my son and I in the face. That happened only once but was a but unnerving. Not sure what that was. Anyhow - since I am new to shooting the gun. Can any of you experienced shooters tell me if this is normal and (mainly) is there is anything to worry about with what I described.
