A small, but powerful hand-blaster from Merr-Sonn Munitions, the Q2 was widely regarded as a diplomats defense. The sleek design and small size made the blaster easily concealable, but quickly drawn in a fight. Padme' Amidala and her hand-maidens carried these during the invasion and battle of Naboo. And Senator Amidala continued to carry one through the Clone Wars. The weapon due to its size (so small, the grip is actually taller than the barrel is long!)that the weapon is declared illegal on many star systems.
