Kirk Kjellberg told WILX-TV that he invented the phone-like gun after a child spotted his concealed weapon in a restaurant and fellow patrons stared at him.

Kjellberg said that he invented the Ideal Conceal "more so for people that want to be able to carry a gun when they need to and not have to engage other people about why they're carrying that gun."

According to Ideal Conceal’s website, the double-barreled .380 caliber weapon is expected to be available for purchase this fall at a list price of $395.00.

Kjellberg said he has been contacted by Homeland Security and is wiling to work with law enforcement agencies to ensure that their officers are trained about the weapon.
