Thanks Joshburch, sounds like the sort of delay one gets from some sort of filament heating up. Most likely a glow plug like the Pyro's and many other flash devices. They can be delicate.

I don't know if it has to do with the firing mechanism, but there is a 3-second delay between when you hit the button and when it actually goes off. This gives you flexibility during performance.
