There’s no shortage of small pistols that will be ideal for concealed carry. You will, of course, have to conceal them unless you want to freak people out. Not the case with the Ideal Conceal, a folding pistol that collapses into a form factor that makes it look like a regular smartphone.
That’s right, it’s a collapsible gun that looks like a smartphone with an all-metal case when bundled up, allowing you to have it out in the open without having anyone automatically dial 911. Seriously, you can have it sticking out of your back pocket, carry it in hand at the subway, or even place it on the table during dinner – a gun is easily one of the last things anyone will suspect they’re looking at.
The Ideal Conceal Pistol is a double-barreled 38-caliber derringer that transforms from its phone-like form into a fatal firearm at the click of a button. Like similar guns, it’s meant for short-distance shooting, making it a handy tool to reach for in the event of an imminent threat, with a hammerless firing system for added safety and better ease of use. The button that transforms it into pistol form also serves as the safety, so it’s ready to fire immediately.
It holds two rounds at a time (one on each barrel), so you can get two shots off to subdue an attacker as necessary. Features include a lightweight one-piece frame and a clip on one side for easily snapping onto your pants’ waist.
Slated for availability mid-2016, the Ideal Conceal Pistol is priced at $395.
