Nobody in the US military qualifies on pistols if they don't rate one.

Non-infantry Marines have a brief combat school called MCT between the MCRD and their MOS training battalion where they are familiarized on a spectrum of infantry weapons and tactics; this is a particular point of institutional pride that the other branches don't do anything like this.

I have heard the Army has several different boot camps which are roughly similar but are divided between those intended for combat arms and those who are not, so I would expect a psych tech to have even less weapons training.
