Yes sort of like that! As a matter of interest I had a percussion revolver do that to me some years ago. Scary at the time but then one has to experience something like that to gain respect for the dangers of older type weapons, and the extra care taken when one wishes to shoot them.(Still got all my fingers by the way)
