(Scroll down for video) A man came up with a new gun that looks like a cellphone.
CEO Kirk Kjellberg of Minnesota, invented the double-barrel .380-caliber handgun that is small and looks like a cellphone.
Kjellberg, who is a legal gun owner, said that he was inspired to create the concealed weapon after he was in a restaurant, and a child told his mother that he was carrying a gun.
Kjellberg decided to create a gun that is more concealed and does not alarm people around him. He then came up with the unique compact design. He calls his company Ideal Conceal.
Although the gun is not yet on shelves, Kjellberg said that he got more than 4,000 requests for the sleek weapon.
The gun will be sold for $395. Kjellberg said that law enforcement officers have also reached out to him. They want the device to train officers on how to recognize it during security screenings.
