.22 Caliber 4 Shot Cell Phone Gun

If you get asked to test your cell phone at the airport, this is the reason. Because cell phone guns have been discovered.

The attached video clip shows how cell phone guns operate. Beneath the digital phone face is a .22 caliber handgun capable of firing four rounds in rapid succession using the standard telephone keypad.

Go HERE to see the video of it in action.

You can find a lot more information here, including that this is not a hoax, at Snopes.

Carrying this could be hazardous to one's health. I can see someone answering the wrong phone and blowing their own ear off.

Makes the cancer-causing phones seem rather tame by comparison. :-)

The article is dated 2001. Wonder what's been happening in the meantime?

Yep, not a hoax. When I was in my last duty assignment as a Deputy Sheriff, in the Enforcement section of Court Security, we were very worried about these phoneguns for a while.

Apparently few to none made it from Serbia where they were made to the US.

That phonegun would stick out badly now, because it emulates a design of phone that has been obsolete for about 6 years now.

I'd be more worrried about pen-guns than phone-guns.

Also, when North American Arms builds tiny mouse-gun pistols like my new Guardian in .32NAA, the world of small and POWERFUL guns is now a reality.

From where is the bullet ejected? Certainly not from the antenna, as each of the four internal barrels are stationary. Perhaps the bullets smash through the case?

In the United States these guns would be considered "gadget guns," like pen guns, and would fall under the federal National Firearms Act.
