Controversial new handgun design looks exactly like a smartphone

A new company from Minnesota that’s appropriately enough called Ideal Conceal has created quite a bit of controversy after touting the creation of a handgun designed to look like a smartphone.

“Smartphones are everywhere,” the company’s website reads, “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.

Set for release sometime in mid-2016, the pistol is a double-barreled .380 caliber firearm sporting a one-piece frame construction. The company plans to sell it for $395 and its developer, one Kirk Kjellberg, claims that they’ve already received upwards of 2,500 emails from interested buyers.
