Well, it's considered a "cap gun", but you can buy live rounds for it. I made my own using solder, but they are a pita to make. Apparently, they can penetrate 6 inches of ballistics gel, and have the same power as a BB gun. The flares, though, are really cool. I shot one on the fourth, I didn't expect much out of it, but when I shot, it made a metallic ping, flew about 250+ feet, then came down. Pretty bright, too.
