    There is nothing that I like about this gun.
    Slow draw.
    Doesn't really look like a phone.
    Two shot capacity.
    Awful sights.
    .380 caliber? You really couldn't fit a .357 in there? And honestly, "High velocity .380? :rolleyes:
    $500? I can get a pocket .380 with four times the capacity for just over half that.

    LOL, it would be easier for anyone to shoot anyone or anything with a regular pistol.

    No, no and no.

    Let's say they become the absolute, epitome of desirable concealed handguns.
    Pretty soon people are going to start getting shot making phone calls!!! :D

    Cool idea, sort of a James Bond type thing, but not for me! A PPK is only a little larger, and a hell of a lot better at the task of providing defensive protection!

    Old news. This has been in the media for probably two years. And before you discount it, I would say this.....a gun that you could carry openly without attracting attention...in shorts and flip flops...that fires two rounds of Underwood .380? Better than a beer bottle!

    This is the complete opposite of one of those. This doesn't look like a gun. Nor does it pretend to look like one. Would I get one? Probably not, but I like the idea.

    yes, I know Im wondering if these became popular if that would affect how police interact with anyone with a true cell phone in their hands. ?

    OK, but what if your real phone rings and you get confused and... :D I know, you have to unfold it before you can shoot yourself.

    I honestly don't think it will be popular enough to offset the roughly 2.6 BILLION smartphone users world wide (est.).

    maybe...
    its not 'really' carried openly if you have to transform it when you draw. A pocket pistol would be faster to deploy and would not attract any attention. Up close it is obvious its not a phone.

    I'm honestly surprised by the responses here. This is one of the most innovative ideas to hit the gun market in quite a long time. I more than likely won't buy one, but cheers to the guys that invented it. Really, this is a win for 2A supporters that may leave their carry at home when dressed for summer.
