Trigger Switch For Ray Gun Answered

Greetings Space Cadets!

I need help figuring out what sort of switch to use to activate the  thermo-nuclear disruptor beam of the ray gun I'm building out of a busted battery powered drill, a smoke alarm and a battery.

Bet you didn't know this combination of junk is dangerous in the wrong hands?

I need a switch that will work with DC current and switch on the circuit when pressed but not stay on.  Like a primitive projectile firing pistol of the 21st century this ray gun should only fire once when the power switch is pressed and not stay on continuously.

Any suggestions?

And yes, I'll post an 'ible when I get it done.
