Yep we carried our issued Gold Dot's.

I know Air Marshalls used to carry the Federal Nyclad frangible rounds when the fear was that a round through the fuselage would cause explosive decompression but with all the research that shows that to be a very minute concern I think they are back to carrying standard rounds now. I'll have to ask a buddy of mine that's an Air Marshall. Last I heard they were carrying Gold Dots as well.
