First there was a knife-a credit card, and now there is a gun-a mobile phone! Sales of a pistol stylized as a smartphone have started in the States. The novelty caused a big stir, its cost was $ 500 (just over 31 thousand rubles).
The United States is the world leader in the number of firearms in the hands of the population. The market has been formed here for a long time, and it is difficult to surprise the local consumer. But this novelty is special. When folded, this gun is indistinguishable from a smartphone, but with a simple movement it turns into a real weapon.
The "pistol-smartphone" looks little different from the phone
The two-shot "smartphone pistol" is a classic Double Deringer caliber.380. The manufacturer guarantees comfortable and concealed wearing. The novelty has a lot of opponents: experts fear that such pistols can be used not for self-defense, but for attack.
The prototype of this unusual firearm was presented in 2016 by the head of Ideal Conceal Kirk Chelberg.
2 years later, the company mass-produced several hundred cell phone pistols and began sending the first copies of weapons to those who made a pre-order. As for full-scale production, it should start before the end of this year, and then cell phone pistol will be available in American gun stores to everyone. Also in the near future, buyers will be able to purchase a special holster for their "smartphone pistols".
Shooting from a "smartphone pistol"
The new pistol does not contradict American law. But on the territory of the Russian Federation, the circulation of firearms, which has a form that imitates other items, is prohibited (Federal Law No. 150-FZ of 13.12.1996).
