new lens won't shoot

My husband gave me a sigma70-300mm lens for my Pentax Kr. I have mounted the lens and followed the instructions. When I push the shoot button nothing happens. Is the lens defective, as a local camera store advised me. OR is there something I've missed. I've mounted it 3 times and on auto or manual nothing happens when I press down on the shoot button. Please help!! I leave for a camera shoot in Mexico on 2/11/13. I hate to have to return the lens.
