Please Help! Bersa M644 .22lr

Im pretty new to guns. I have a shotgun and just bought a pistol. The pistol is a Bersa M644 .22lr. I bought some rounds and went to shoot. Pulled the trigger and no bang. I tried 2 different brands and tried both with the same results. My question is, is this a centerfire as opposed to rimfire? (i bought rimfire) or just bad brands? (Rem. 22 Thunderbolt as American Eagle) or something wrong with the pistol itself? Ive looked online and can't find the answer. Also, if the ammo is the issue, is it legal to sell ammo, say, on craigslist? If you can help, please do. The wife and I are anxious to fire it. We've heard they're a lot of fun to shoot. Thanks!

If it's a .22 lr pistol, it's rimfire. Are you getting sharp firing pin indentations on the cartridges?

Not that I noticed. Nothing happened really. It didnt jam or anything either. Just nothing. I could remove the clip and work the slide to eject the round. Any ideas what else my problem might be?

Could you have had the safety on? I haven't shot the Bersa, but with my wife's P22, if you have the safety on and pull the trigger, the hammer will still fall but is mechanically blocked from hitting the firing pin.

Thank you Scott Riqui. I did more nosing around and its got 2 safeties. A trigger safety and hammer safety that works like your wifes P22. I hadnt noticed it a since the hammer fell, thought the issue was internal. I feel stupid now for not noticing it. But at least ill know for all future pistol experience. Thanks for bring so quick in responding. Ill let you know how she shoots.

That's a nice all steel pistol that was imported by Interarms about 20 years ago, or more. Don't dry fire it as that may harm the firing pin. Enjoy the pistol.
