My searching for non-military uses has come up with only one possible alternative, that one (Launching sounding type payloads has already been mentioned by mfb, although the G-forces on the payload seem a bit extreme).
GA at http://www.ga.com/ has the technology for rail guns down to the "state of the art" and their site is pretty cool, worth looking at for more than just rail guns.
As an after thought I did come across this http://www.powerlabs.org/uwavexp.htm#The POWERLABS Microwave Gun! and was wondering what members think of the guy's physics explanations, (This seems a little risky for the "do it yourself" crowd)
