Sound Effect on a Trigger, Don't know how

Ghostly Greetings.

I'm starting to design a home-made steampunk gun. So it will be futuristic-retro. I can probably get some flashing lights from toy guns or something, but I'd like it to have sound, also. The sound boxes on toy guns are awful, maybe 5 year olds like them, but not me. They are tinny, scratchy, and barely resemble a bang.

I'd like to record some gunfire (probably from Call of Duty, they have some good electronic pulse gun noises) and have it playback, LOUDLY and clearly, whenever I pull the trigger.

I'm not adverse to buying something like a tiny MP3 player and speaker, but i don't know how to actuate the pushing of the button via a trigger.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for reading.

There are so many options with electronics these days! I didn't see the direct control in the ebay listing when I first looked at it, it's not obvious in how it's described.

Not that long ago the only options for playing mp3s back were really expensive and sometimes really unreliable (VMusic, anyone?)

Have fun with what you build!
