THE IDEAL CONCEAL IC380 CELL PHONE PISTOL
Ideal Conceal is a pocket pistol with a one-handed folding grip. When collapsed and unsuitable for fire, the weapon mimics the presence of a cell phone. It is manufactured by Ideal Conceal Inc., of Monticello, MN.  Ideal Ocultar has drawn attention and scrutiny in light of concerns about the similarity to a PDA and potential legitimate and security issues with law enforcement.    Due to a combination of parts and revenue issues, the organization halted creation and closed in 2022.
The Ideal Conceal is a derringer-style pistol that holds two .38-t
ype barrels, loaded for .380 ACP cartridges. It is dark, with a plastic exterior and a metal core.  It is the size of a Samsung Galaxy S7 and has a handle that folds down to give it the presence of a mobile phone when not in use.  When compressed, it crashes, so it can’t be undone. The one-handed grip acts as a comfort and is held with a catch. To prime the firearm, the one-handed grip must be physically opened, so the firearm generally assumes the presence of a traditional pistol, which meets the prerequisites for a firearm under national firearms law.
