555 triggered by a switch and thyrister problem!! PLEASE HELP!!

Hi, I have a problem because a switch is working as a reset switch for the solenoid as well as a tension release mechanism for the pulley. The thyristor is also triggering the 555 chip (monostable). Do you guys have a solution, please do not tell me to have 2 switches for the tension release as well as the reset for the solenoid circuit. PLEASE SEE MY ATTACHED PICTURE AND MY VIDEO ON YOUTUBE EXPLAINING MY PROBLEM FURTHER!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akqatPnyV04 Ahmad

Is a high ampere switch necessary?? Answered

I was going to try to build my now 2nd coil gun but this time wanted a solid state switch. after looking at the following: https://www.instructables.com/id/50-cal-Coil-Gun/step3/The-Design/ i was wondering if an 800A SCR is really necessary or can i just use a 16A SCR?
