Origin of the Blaster: Han Solo’s Weapon in Star Wars
Did you know Han Solo’s iconic blaster, the “DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol” in Star Wars was actually based on a handgun used by the Nazis? In this episode, we talk about the Mauser C96 Pistol, the origin of a few interesting Star Wars props and I quiz Comedian, Writer and Producer, Jay Black who is a much larger Star Wars nerd than I ever knew. This is a good one!
