New concealed-carry gun looks like a smartphone

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WCMH)– A Minnesota company is making national headlines for a gun that’s not even on the market yet.

The start-up Monticello company, called Ideal Conceal, is getting a lot of attention for its double-barrel .380-caliber handgun. The reason why? The gun is designed to look just like a cell phone.

The smartphone shaped gun can hold two bullets. It cannot be fired while in the closed position.

CEO Kirk Kjellberg tells NBC affiliate KARE-TV 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 CNN Money 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.
