first I'm not to sure if this is the right fourm, anyway this cell phone is rather James Bondish.
I for see people being shot buy the police for having cell phones mistaken for a gun if this product comes onto production.

I'm afraid you've fallen for an urban legend:
urbanlegends.about.com...

It's a hoax video... anyone with a little bit of gun knowledge knows this really isn't a workable idea. Did you see their other products... the mobile telephone booth is an absolute hoot!

The hoax article you linked to indicates that it's true, not a hoax. Doesn't seem too difficult to create one of these things with even rudimentary knowledge of how guns work.

Guns have certainly been disguised as less likely objects than a cell phone.

If the ‘antenna’ of the cell phone acts as the gun’s barrel, and it is stationary, and the four rounds inside the cell phone are stationary (the cartridges don’t appear to move or be able to rotate inline with the barrel), how does it fire more than one round?

LOL thanks Byrd, I had just seen the vid and posted it. Though I'm sure one could be made easy enough if the need arose.

Yike! You're right!
www.snopes2.com...

Thing is, though, this came out in 2001...and there hasn't been a peep or indication that there's any followup on it. No flood of these items into the market, etc. Another researcher says there's no indication they were ever commercially produced. :

www.breakthechain.org...

I think I'll write Snopes and ask them to update the article.

It says in the article that it acually is true. Just because a website like break the chain says it is not doesnt make it the word. Snopes says its true, but they are not always right either.

If you had the hammer fall back out of the way, the cartidge could be ejected to a space to the back of the cell phone and the next cartidge pops into place by spring. Sure looks big enough to do it. If you were in a bad place at a bad time you could walk around with that thing like you are talking on it while it cocked, then its pointed safely in the air. Some criminal is gonna want the phone before they kill you so it doesnt fall and ruin the new phone they were going to take off your body.

You then "hand them your phone"

How much recoil would it have? How would the weapon disperse it's energy when firing a round?

Is it gas-operated?

I've seen some pretty unlikely guns that turned out to work, however this is one I doubt can.

Well, its a .22, so there wouldnt be much recoil, but its probably very inaccurate, of course its for short ranges anyways though probably, so i guess it wouldnt matter, im guessing that it would work, i just dont think it would be effective to any extent.

Does any one know where to find one of these in the US? (legally)

It would be possible to make a cell phone gun. You can make one out of a pen for christ sake. It looks like in the video the antenna is just one barrel while there are probabyl 3 other holes from the cell phone. You can see different location muzzle flashes.

Why would you want one; are you planning on murdering someone?

your kidding right?

the HELLS ANGELS motorcycle gang are in Finland too? i though that was an american/canadian thing .. thats cool.

and they were using cellphone .22 caliber handguns? lol

i said if i ever bought a handgun it would be a .22, so i'd be all for it. I feel like, if you want to shoot a big bullet, use an appropiately sized "big" gun to do it. If you want a handgun for its small size, you should also want it for the smallness of its' bullet, the weight of the gun itself and it's swiftness when wielded, its lesser total ammo count when loaded, etc etc.. everything that makes it 'small & concealable'. It's a little thing to get the job done with, and quickly!

me personally, i'm a loser and would opt for a post-assault weapon ban (american thing) semi-auto (full auto disabled) Ak-47 that takes and uses the universal sized Nato round, the same round that goes in the M-16 and its new variants, .228 I think. That would provide less hitting power sure, that Ak would not be able to shoot through concrete walls with ease or heavy car-doors like the bigger round (the one on the original AK-47, 7.62x* [draws a blank]) which it is known for. But on the otherhand, the ammunition would be more widely available in my home area or anywhere in my country, the recoil would be much less, which is good and gives it a better overall rating in my book. It would be a sheep in wolf's clothing, lol.
