"Oh, safety."
―Rey realizes the safety of her blaster is still on while trying to fire it[src]

A safety was a device present on some weapons that prevented them from being fired accidentally. The NN-14 blaster pistol given to Rey by Han Solo was one such weapon equipped with a safety. When she attempted to use it against Unkar Plutt and his thugs, she found it did not work because she had not disengaged the safety, a feature she was unaware of.[1] She later disengaged it before using the weapon against First Order stormtroopers.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

In the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is shown disengaging her weapon's safety before firing at stormtroopers.[2] The film's novelization provides a bit of background by showing Rey attempting to use the weapon against Unkar Plutt, but being foiled by the safety being engaged.[1] This sequence is also present in one of the film's deleted scenes.
