    Synonym for start gun

    Sir! Madam!

    I have a question: is start gun a synonym of something? The device you use to let the horses loose at the start of a horse race. Or human beings, not of a horse race. Or... I don't know, toads. Or zebras.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I have seen the similar term, "starter pistol".

    Yes I think starting pistol is used more often than starting gun but not 100% sure.
