Cell phone shaped gun.
This won’t sell. It’s a curiosity piece absent of practical self-defense utility.
The premise is there’s some value in it being mistakable for a cell phone in plain sight amirite…. And we lack for a pistol that does that.
I don’t see that appeal, not with this thing’s deficiencies as a weapon. IE, it’s a two shot piece, it doesn’t have sights, basically does not have a proper grip…
A derringer is that already, but superior in its form factor deficiencies… is two shot also, but has a proper grip, you don’t have to un-collapse it to shoot…. Now right, a derringer is not mistakable for a cell phone in plain sight. I question the validity of that as a functional req rather than just say fitting into a jacket pocket pretty well. Which a derringer does.
Big thing is, no one who really has to maintain a consciousness over their self-defense in public selects a derringer as their weapon. They select a real handgun, and use their wardrobe to disguise it.
Side note: a market oddity right now is that the prevailing retail price of a 5 shot Ruger LCP .380 is about $200. Ruger makes good products, and the LCP is hardly bigger than a deck of cards.
You’re going to lose money on this, aspiring gun maker guy.
