This will just give the police another reason not to be filmed with a cellphone. It could be a gun!!

oh joy - a folding derringer

that looks nothing like a cellphone

I see no gun only CAD drawings I think it's a setup to get people fired up. Just my $.02 and I know a little.

For those who want to appear unarmed, which is the best way to surprise a potential assailant, this would take some beating. You can hear the mugger demand the phone and get dropped, just looking at the thing. I wonder how fast it can deploy from the phone shape, to the gun?

When posting the op, I tried to find a video showing the conversion from cellphone status to gun. None were posted on Utube, and usually gun manufacturers like Ideal includes them on the same page as it's product. It appears to be a hinged mechanism, and can't imagine the conversion process to be complex, for self-defense scenarios. Definitely a different concept, that's for sure.

The Walther PK380 or the Glock 43, or a Walther PPK would all be better to carry than a 2 shot .380 derringer.

I like the idea and it should be explored further and expanded upon. But this is not practical.

I found the PPK to be stiff actioned, and a little heavy. G43 is a good choice and $200 less than my Sig239. Aftermarket trigger kits are in the works for the G43, which to me makes it a winner in this category. The one feature of many current pocket pistols is having the barrel, recoil rod and spring separate parts, as compared to older units that had the barrel welded to the frame, like the AMT Backup.

I don't have the patent number anymore, but there was a submachine gun that folded into a stick shape that was developed for a three letter agency. It was an open bolt blowback design that had the magazine as a grip. If I remember correctly it was patented in the 1960's. It was about an inch and a half wide, three inches thick and maybe fourteen inches long when folded judging by the patent drawings for a 9mm.

Which book was it in?
I only ever saw the patent and I don't remember the name of the inventor, but I believe the assignee for the patent was the US government.

Ideal Conceal has engineered a carry gun that has all the outward appearances of a cellphone. The concept is intriguing for concealed as well as open carry enthusiasts, and will most likely be the center of controversy in gun-free areas due to it's camouflaged nature.
The gun is chambered in .380 caliber, and get this--double barreled. I'm sure it will be lambasted by the likes of Horowitz or Sugarman, much to my delight.idealconceal.com...[/quot]

For a little more oomph, go with a briefcase with an HK MP5 K [short barrel] inside. A trigger on the briefcase handle does the job....and the brass stays inside...

Okay, I found the patent.
The govt was not involved with it, but is is a fairly neat design. I was wrong about the date too, it was 1984... not the 1960's.
That is what happens when you get old.
