    It would be illegal to have it in plain sight if the person carrying it is in a state the bans open carry.

    Nah, they'll just start banning smartphones that are in plain public sight :D

    Then, when the air gets too dangerous to breathe, they'll ban that too.

    In my state any pistol that is not clearly recognized as a pistol is considered concealed and not open carried, but I live in an open carry state anyways so we are good either way with carrying a really stupid gun. :rolleyes:

    I could definitely roll with that. What's with people answering their cell

    phone in your house, and carrying on a conversation, like they are

    in their office?

    BTW, am I the only one who's noticed "Smart Phones" are pretty much

    good at ANYTHING BUT making a phone call?

    Sooo, I feel like this is like the Borg thing.

    When the Borg do it to people, it's considered the most

    terrifying, horrible thing known to man. But people cram

    a Bluetooth in their ear, have all sorts of piercing done, and

    tattoos for which they pay a small fortune, and THAT's OK.

    NOW, you wouldn't want to answer the phone if somebody put a

    gun to your head and said "answer the phone".

    BUT NOW, you are going to spend thousands of dollars, SO YOU

    CAN PUT A LOADED GUN TO YOUR OWN HEAD, EVERY TIME YOU

    ANSWER YOUR OWN PHONE?

    DAAAAAHHHHH! DAAAAHHHHH!


    "OH wait a minute, my gun is ringing..."

    LoL, I had one of those. Strange how all the other kids knew what it was as soon as they saw it. Guess they saw the TV ads for it.

    As soon as they actually start making them ATF will simply find it an 'any other device.' and that will be that. Pen guns, cane guns, cell phone guns (not a new idea btw, in the days of flip phones a Hong Kong firm made a single shot 22 that looked like a Motorola flip phone if you didn't really look at it), camera guns (again an old 1950s idea (possibly resurfaced when Bobby K was shot)), knife guns (dates to the days of flint locks) etc, they all require ATF approval and registration and a shooter's goal is less paperwork not more.

    Yeah, this thing isn't for me. Just get better at concealing a real gun and you won't have a need for your Samsung derringer 7... Hahahahaha

    Ugly with a low capacity. What's to like? I'll pass.

    I'll stick with my current set up, and LCP in a semi-large phone case on the belt, that completely covers it. Cheaper, better capacity, and no, why do you have two phones questions when you pull you real phone out of another pocket or case. that or the pistol is in the pocket (In a pocket holster folks.), and the cell is in another pocket, or a case, and it's a dumb phone instead of a "Smart" phone.

    With as fast as most of my friends and family kill touch screens, I have no desire to own one with that feature. I'll stick with my older, full keyboard phone instead.

    There's just so many issues, in this recipe for disaster,

    that it makes a very target rich field. OK, HOW would

    take a selfie of you and your gun?

    How about when the phone gets hot, right next to the ammo?

    OK, somebody is busy, doing a lot of stuff at once. Stressed out,

    a lot on their mind.The phone rings, and instead of answering it,

    they accidentally set up the gun, and pull the trigger.


    Ha-ta-ta...

    It will not fire in the folded position. That's the same loophole Braverman took advantage of to sell the Stinger pen gun.

    I like the concept. If the product is good, I will like it too.
    I liked the Taurus Curve until it came out as a piece of ****. :(

    The way people like the steal fancy phones , sure go ahead and hang a slow to ready handgun / fake phone of your belt . I stay with a real handgun with more that 2 slow to fire rounds . Make slightly more since to have a real pistol in the fake phone carrier .

    Here's an interview with the guy who came up with the idea, and then built it from there. i guess he's taking a lot of flak over it, and of course, Chuck Screwmore is already having a caniption over it, and want's to see it banned.

    https://www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/2016/04/cell-phone-gun-inventor-i-knew-some-people-wouldnt-it-i-wasnt-expecting-so-m

    i can see some valid use for it, not that I have slept on it, but at it's price point, there are better options out there. one could pick up a used LC9 or LCP for that asking price, and still have extra money for ammo to boot.
