Default Firearms training and familiarity for US Army mental health specialist

I know that US soldiers do not carry weapons on military bases in the Continental United States unless they are on duty as base security or similar.

What I'm wondering is how often would a mental health specialist (68x) who spent a year in the army have held a weapon and which weapons would she be familiar with?

Everyone gets basic training and that presumbably includes some days of learning how to use an M16A2. Is the operation of an M9 pistol taught in basic? How about the M11/SIG P226? What about rarer military weapons? Are machine guns and grenade launchers fired in Basic Combat Training or is that only in AIT for the appropriate MOS?

Are Army personnel in a non-combat MOS like mental health specialist ever issued a gun if they are not deployed overseas?
