Rising edge to Pulse Voltage

Im basically entirely new to Electrical Engineering, however I really want to challenge myself to become a better one, so I decided to try to mod a nerf gun to be a coil gun, more or less. Now, I know physics like the back of my hand, but when it comes to wiring everything up, I am at a loss.

Right now, I need to change a trigger pull of indefinite length into a quick pulse of voltage where I could tweak the pulse length to make the gun fire consistently. I did some research and it looks like I’ll essentially need to wire up a rising edge detector more or less…

Am I on the right track? And if so, how would I go about doing this physically?
