Chicago, IL, May 25, 2017 (Newswire.com) - truCrowd.com - the Reg. CF funding portal for non-accredited investors that allows anyone to invest in startups and growing businesses, announced that the first Cellphone Pistol in the world, created by Ideal Conceal, is now open for investing.
Ideal Conceal, Inc. is a custom pistol manufacturing company that invented and is soon-to-be patent holder of the gun known as the Cellphone Pistol. The gun is a double-barreled .380-caliber derringer that folds up to resemble a common smartphone. Its innovative shape, remarkable lightness and ease of concealment are some of the main features that make the Cellphone Pistol unique.
We see an increase in violence and terrorism across the world and unfortunately the bad guys will always have guns. In these circumstances it is normal for ordinary people to wish to be armed with a pistol they can easily carry to protect themselves and their families. I think Ideal Conceal gives these people the chance to do so.

The hammerless design prevents misfire from snagging the hammer on clothes or other objects. The grip folds over the trigger for extra safety. For safety purposes, this pistol also has a built in handle lock to prevent unauthorized use.
In April 2016, Cellphone Pistol hit the internet and immediately went viral. The buzz around the Cellphone Pistol generated more than 1,000,000 YouTube views, 500,000+ website visits, 20,000 emails, 26,000 social media followers, and began a grassroots pre-order campaign that resulted in 750 pre-sales and signups from over 250 dealers from U.S. and abroad to sell in their stores. Major publications like Market Watch, Huffington Post and NBC News wrote about the novelty brought by Ideal Conceal into the industry.
“Off-duty police officers, Realtors, hospital employees, soccer moms and more have expressed a need for a discrete gun that can be concealed even when wearing summer clothing like shorts and a T-shirt,” says Kirk Kjellberg, CEO of Ideal Conceal. “We’ve created the Cellphone Pistol for them. The most concealable pistol in the world. A gun that allows these people the option of not being the victim. Most threats will occur in less than a 30’ range. Ease and speed of deployment will mean the difference in the outcome. With the Ideal Conceal pistol, the carrier can be quick on the draw, stopping a threat effectively and immediately.”
“The world we live in is not perfect,” says Vincent Petrescu, CEO of truCrowd. “We see an increase in violence and terrorism across the world and, unfortunately, the bad guys will always have guns. In these circumstances, it is normal for ordinary people to wish to be armed with a pistol they can easily carry to protect themselves and their families. I think Ideal Conceal gives these people the chance to do so, and we are glad we can help by hosting their campaign on our platform.”
Funds raised will be used to build the necessary infrastructure to sell the pistol worldwide and to create a stockpile of inventory. The company also plans on adding a laser to the existing model and to develop new models in the near future. This offering complies with the SEC equity crowdfunding (Reg CF) regulations permitting investments to start at as low as $102. Please visit the offering for more details.
