Smartphone gun: Palm-sized pistol looks like a mobile phone when folded up – TomoNews

MONTICELLO, MINNESOTA — A Minnesota startup has come up with the latest innovation in concealable weapons — a gun that looks like your run-of-the-mill mobile phone.

According to CNN Money, entrepreneur Kirk Kjellberg developed the Ideal Conceal gun as a way to carry a weapon without bothering other people.

Unlike other easily concealed guns like the folding revolver or the Taurus Curve — a gun shaped like a box with rounded edges — its main draw is that it doesn’t look like a gun when folded.

A double barreled .380 caliber derringer, the Ideal Conceal is designed to resemble a smartphone. It transforms into a gun when the safety clicks open and releases the grip.

The gun cannot be fired while in its locked position, making it safe to carry while clipped to the side or in a purse.

The palm-sized pistol addresses the demand for easy-to-carry guns that can be accessed quickly for self-defense, according to the brand’s website.

Already, Kjellberg has received thousands of emails from people who want to buy the weapon. It will sell for $395 when it goes on the market later this year.

Not everyone is sold on the idea, though. CNN Money reports that law enforcement officials are concerned about a weapon disguised as something else and hidden in plain sight. And depending on state and local laws, Ideal Conceal carriers may still be required to have a concealed carry permit.

    Pros:
    easy to hide

    Cons:
    Low capacity
    Long deploy time
    If it becomes popular cops have an excuse to be more trigger happy and shoot people who record them
    Poor ergonomics
    You're literally carrying a derringer

    I am a law enforcer in the Philippines. I find it very useful especially during intelligence operations as it doesn't appear like a gun actually. My question then is, How can I have one?

    Firearms meeting the definition of "any other weapon" or AOW are weapons or devices capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive. Many AOWs are disguised devices such as pens, cigarette lighters, knives, cane guns and umbrella guns.

    if you ask me….it could also be used in the cops favor….if the cop is being recorded from a smart phone….all he has to do is order that it be put away due to the possibility of it being a gun….
    somebody files a complaint….all the officer needs to say is "well with the new smart phone gun going around, I couldn't tell the difference" but in all honesty it's a really nifty idea. I conceal carry all the time. it would be a great back up weapon

    What a stupid gimmick. You have to unclip the gun from the belt, fold it out, and… all you get is two shots with an anemic cartridge like the 380? And for almost $400? Please. For that much I can conceal carry a double stack Glock all year round, and it offers a lot more firepower than that. Or for half that much I can pocket carry a derringer. People are freaking out because this is extremely easy to conceal, but honestly it's a worthless firearm that falls under the category of "get-off-me" guns. Only used to aid in escape; not to engage in a firefight.

    This is a pretty interesting idea. Kind of smart, but I will tell you what's not smart. The price. 395 dollars? That's too much especially considering some of the problems people could possibly be facing for having it (such as laws in a particular area). I could understand if this was an actual smartphone that can make text and calls (dude, that would be awesome). But for a simple smartphone look-alike? No. I also hear that it only holds two bullets at a time. I don't know if that is true or not, but if that is, then that is very inconvenient. I know this is more for defense (as all guns should be), but if I am paying that much for a gun, I want it to hold more bullets just in case. They probably are doing that as a safety precaution for anyone that might use this criminally, but still. At least let it hold four bullets.

    Two shots then you have to run away… not my idea of protection… the aggressor has to be real close for a hit… not a good option for any one.

    Three hundred and eighty caliber? DAMN. that's anti tank territory. I think you mean three hundredths and eighty caliber or .380 generally considered the minimum caliber for self defense. personally, I'm not interested, I'll stick with a single stack 9 mm with a .357 snubby in the opposite pocket.

    Dual barrel makes it look like a 2-round gun. If so, that's not particularly useful. You'd need to be extremely accurate. It also probably won't intimidate people like a regular gun does as it looks like a toy. It also looks like it could be snapped in half without trouble. Sorry, no way I'm buying one of these.

    Great, now cops are going to have an actual excuse to murder unarmed minorities. All you have to do is be holding a phone at the wrong time….
