Is gun sound and smoke produced at the same time?

The smoke is produced slightly before the sound. Smoke is produced by the ignition of the propellant in the round. The sound is produced when the bullet passes through the sound barrier.


From the stands of a race track why do you notice smoke from the starter's gun before you hear it fire?

You notice the smoke before hearing the starter's gun fire because light travels faster than sound. The light from the smoke reaches your eyes almost instantly, while sound waves take longer to travel the distance from the gun to your ears, resulting in the visual cue preceding the auditory one.
