Soon a 9 millimeter pistol disguised as a smartphone can be bought in the US.
The company Ideal Conceal says the new pistol will be in sale within a few months.
They say the weapon is 'ingeniously designed to resemble a smartphone, yet with one click of the safety it opens and is ready to fire..'
"Smartphones are EVERYWHERE, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today’s environment. In its locked position it will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight," it says on the company's website.
"The ground breaking Ideal Conceal is a carefully engineered double barreled .380 caliber people can safely carry in their purse or clipped to their side.
The product was designed with safety as a priority. A brand everyone can trust, a piece they can rely on, over and over."
The gun has two barrels for 9 millimeter ammunition, and the retail price will be at $395.00.
Gun laws are a big issue in the US, where opinions range from those who want stricter control to those who believe it is necessary to carry weapons to protect themselves.
Every year, more than 30,000 Americans dies from gunshot wounds. Around two-thirds of the deaths are suicides.
Eight states allow so-called "concealed carry", ie to carry guns that are hidden, for example under clothing.
