An example of a hold-out blaster.
"If you're going to have to admit to carrying a hold-out blaster, carry two and admit to one."
―Han Solo

Hold-out blasters (also holdout blaster) were small, palm-sized blasters that could be easily concealed inside a sleeve. Because of their small size, holdout blasters usually could only fire six shots before expending their power cells. They saw widespread use in weapon-restricted areas[1] and were commonly found in the possession of undercover agents[1], gamblers and other scoundrels, or nobles seeking to protect themselves. The association of holdout blasters with more nefarious characters meant that such blasters were outlawed on some worlds. They were sometimes carried by more lethal characters for back-up firepower. Iella Wessiri Antilles, Mara Jade Skywalker, and Han Solo were among the many to use holdout blasters. Holdout Blasters were hidden on each floor of the Imperial Palace, contained within a datacard box regarding the complete history of Corvis Minor
