Gom Jabbar = Dune [altho' that was just a test w/ a poison needle for the loser., not really a weapon.]

Since any kind of mass-thrower is going to suck for a space cadet in EVA, I'm going to second the poster who said "an updated version of the GyroJet."

Thinking a little closer to the ground... If the branch gets their own installations, they'll have their guard forces, reactionary teams, check points, probably the same as the AF MP's that patrol AF bases and nuke fields. Maybe Chiappa will design and sell them a Super Badger.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

Phaser is the way to go. It can be carried concealed or openly. A phaser is small and lightweight. It recharges in a couple of hours using the proper plasma conduit. Its output ranges from stun that knocks you down on your posterior to OMG vaporization.

The rifle model fires 100,000 watts of pure energy at mountains, small moons, and assorted Klingons, etc.

"...punch through a space suit..." That'd have to be recoiless or energy based(that doesn't exist) as physics applies everywhere.
