“That’s where Ideal Conceal comes in, smart phones are EVERYWHERE, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today’s environment. In its locked position it will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight.”
Will we not have cops drawing their weapons when someone pull out a smart phone to “shoot” a video of them? The implications are staggering!
Ideal Conceal CEO Kirk Kjellberg told the us that the lightweight invention aids gun owners hoping to avoid a Second Amendment debate.
“Part of what this allows people to do is carry a weapon without engaging in that conversation,” Kjellberg said. “This way, you don’t have to have a .38 or .44 strapped to your waist, you can carry it in your front pocket.
The smart phone shaped gun can hold two bullets. It cannot be fired while in the closed position.
CEO Kirk Kjellberg tells NBC affiliate he got the idea for the gun at a restaurant, after getting his permit to carry — and quickly realizing he’d like to be more concealed.
“This little kid says, ‘Mommy, Mommy, that man’s got a gun,’ so the whole restaurant looks at you like you’re about to shoot the place up,” Kjellberg said. “So I thought to myself there’s got to be another way to be able to carry without bothering other people.”
The company tells us the gun will cost $395 when it goes on sale later this year. Kjellberg says he’s already received 2,500 emails from people who want to buy one.
Critics of the gun argue that a regular smart phone is already much more useful, and that there are already several apps if one wants a pocket-friendly means of killing.
