Background: The DH-17 blaster pistol was commonly used by soldiers of the Rebel Alliance for conflicts aboard starships, and sometimes the officers of the Galactic Empire carried it instead of the standard E-11 blaster rifles.
The pistol was dependable on a semiautomatic setting, firing in short bursts. The pistol could also be fired fully automatic, but the power would be drained within 20 seconds, making fully automatic firing only worth using in panic situations. Its high rate of fire and reasonable accuracy made it ideal for medium-range combat.
