I'm working on a script where a member of the Belgian State

Customer Question
I'm working on a script...
I'm working on a script where a young member of the Belgian State Secret Service in their training academy decides he's going to beat the high score in a particular field exercise by stealing a test weapon from a firearms lab on their campus and using it to win. In the script, this happens 10 years ago, so whatever it is has to be a bit older technology. I'm thinking something like a first-generation non-metallic gun or "printed" gun or something new then. Let me ask this differently: If you were going to "borrow" a weapon from a new-technology weapons testing or development area to use in a CIA live-fire field training exercise, what would it be? Maybe it isn't a weapon at all, but a sophisticated tracking device of some kind. Any suggestions?

Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help. How about the weapon remains a standard gun, but the ammo (bullet) could be guided, like a guided missile? Someone could be "steering" the bullet to go exactly where they want it to go.....

Thoughts?

Are you familiar at all with FBI training exercises? Do they actually use live ammo like that? I do understand that such ammunition was being developed 10 years ago . . . I get that . . . but since I'm unfamiliar with how these training exercises are conducted, I'm not sure if they use live ammo. Are there other ways agent-in-training might cheat on an exercise like that. Think of it like James Kirk cheating on the Kobayashi Maru no-win scenario in Star Trek. I'm thinking that "borrowing" some kind of test weapon would be an interesting idea, but I'm not sure.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm sorry . . . Perhaps I should be contacting the FBI Public information office directly. Would that perhaps be more appropriate?
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 1 year ago

Former Deputy Sheriff here.....any law enforcement training on a range will be with live ammo.

Is he shooting against someone else...competing? They could have some kind of audio tone that disrupts the other shooters but he has earplugs to protect against...

This isn't a range . . . I'm thinking of it more like a fake urban city where they are going from building to building to search for a terrorist.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 1 year ago

Well, there are many live fire exercises that are conducted in fake towns / buildings.....like a "shoothouse"

This is meant to be their "final exam."
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 1 year ago

Ok..I guess I'm not understanding where you are trying to go with this.

This is the final training exercise for the academy. He leads a team into a city where terrorists have taken over (another team). His job is to keep his team alive and clear the buildings. I'm not sure how he can cheat, really. The idea of sound disabling the other team is an interesting one.

or a directed EMP to stop their communications.

I'm sorry . . . I know this is confusing. I think I should probably contact the FBI directly. I feel silly I bothered you.
