In this case, a pepper ball rifle. My son is currently undergoing full certification and this is now issued to him. The class work and scenario training continues this week and next, but he's already passed the range qualification. These are like paint ball guns on steroids, yet deliver a ball of noxious pepper spray gas rapidly and in great quantity if needed. He's used earlier versions in the past, but they weren't like this and now he's certified. The problem is he's also the squad's primary lethal rifle operator, so this baby might not see a whole lot of time, but if the situation dictates and allows, I'm sure he'll be excited and ready to deploy!
