Even without the loading issues, I would suggest setting aside a less lethal weapon and putting distinctive markings on it.
That's a good idea. I know someone who mistakenly shot someone with buckshot when he thought he had less lethal ammo loaded. The only thing that saved him was the fact the perp was pointing a .357 at him when he did it (it was actually a pretty funny story when he told it).
