Characteristics

Model Q2 hold-out blaster pistol

Small enough to be concealed in the hand of a Human, the Q2 hold-out blaster was common among undercover agents and those beings wishing to use a low-profile weapon. Due to its size, many systems declared this pistol illegal, while others had its usage closely regulated. Other star systems tended view it as a "self-defense" alternative to the other, more powerful personal blaster.

The Q2 was actually taller than it is long, being only 9.6 cm in length and 10.3 cm in height—from the bottom of the handle to the top of the receiver. A specialized power pak was required, and could be purchased from any authorized Merr-Sonn dealer for twenty credits. This supplied enough energy for six shots.

History

Queen Padmé Amidala and her retinue of handmaidens were trained to proficiency with these weapons. She even kept a set of these in a secret compartment in the armrest of her throne.
