Are they shot from "normal" guns? ...shaped like "normal" bullets? ...literally rubber?

The ones I am familar with, come in two varieties. The Rubber round, and then a hard plastic round. Both are about 4 inches long and have a diameter of a quarter coin. The weapon used to fire the projectile looked like an M-79 blooper, and SOP was to depress the weapon and induce a skip in the round from what I am told.

What its actual purpose was eludes me, normally it was used in conjuction with CS gas and Smoke, but apparently never in salvo.
