What's going on is light primer strikes. Could be gummed up oil slowing the hammer fall, a weak mainspring, or excessive headspace. I would star at the easiest one to fix first, open it up and give it a good bath and a few drops of oil (or if you aren't comfortable doing this take it to a gunsmith for a disassemble/clean/oil). If that doesn't fix the problem, try a new mainspring (probably $10 or so). If you have serious headspace, the cylinder can be shimmed. If that won't work, it's a whole different ball game.
