Full Conceal has turned the defensive pistol upside-down by providing legally armed citizens with a full-sized handgun that collapses and carries easier than most sub-compact pistols. Gone are the days of sacrificing capacity and control for light weight concealability. Now you can have both! The Full Conceal M3D Folding Pistol gives you the handling, control and capacity of a GLOCK 19 Gen 3 in a package not much bigger than your cell phone. No bulky holster or belt clips to give you away, and it’s safe to carry loaded in your pocket with one in the chamber. Once unfolded and deployed the M3D shoots and performs just like your trusted G19. Carry anywhere with confidence with out printing or giving yourself away, get the M3D from Full Conceal!
The Full Conceal M3 Folding Glock 19 is a compact handgun with a footprint of a cell phone. 22 rounds of 9mm are ready to fire immediately once your pistol is drawn. The M3 is designed with a folded trigger safety that prevents the trigger bar from moving and engaging the trigger sear. This keeps your weapon from firing while concealed to give you the confidence to carry a loaded round in the chamber. The M3 is easy to conceal without the use of a holster if waistband carry is not a comfortable option for you.
What is it for? Why, to sell, of course!” is what writer and firearms trainer Jeff Cooper would famously snort whenever encountering a firearm whose purpose he didn’t understand or approve of. This is probably unfairly cynical. After all, all firearms are made to sell. Manufacturers don’t churn things out without the expectation of being paid.
What’s in a Design?
However, it does cause one to think about the actual design purpose of particular guns. Take, for example, the Glock 17. It’s a fairly popular concealed carry gun in some circles, but it certainly wasn’t designed for concealed carry. It was designed to win the Austrian service pistol contract and get carried around on web belts by officers, MPs, and the like.
There are even hard-core types who conceal the Glock 34 every day, although it was designed for practically the opposite of concealment — to be as big as it can be and still fit in the box that allows it to compete in a gun game.
The first Glock designed with true concealed carry in mind was the Glock 26, and it achieves its concealability by chopping the grip down to two-fingers worth and giving up more than 40-percent of its magazine capacity. More recent concealable models from Glock, the G42 and G43, are even more concealable by virtue of thinness, at the cost of another 40-percent capacity loss from the already reduced G26.
It was the difficulty of shooting these little concealment guns well that was one of the first things that came to mind when inventor Mike Full read the news of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater massacre back in 2012. Full started out carrying a Glock 19, the gun that’s pretty much the standard industry answer to “What gun should I carry?” but he found it difficult to conceal when carried outside the waistband and uncomfortable to carry inside the waistband.
He transitioned to a Glock 26 in a pocket and concealed its outline by stowing it in a pouch with a spare magazine ahead of the trigger guard, giving the whole package a bricklike silhouette reminiscent of a PDA or cell phone. But when the bulk of the pouch was added to the chubby little Glock, the whole package wasn’t concealable enough for Full, and that resulted in him carrying a Kahr PM9 in the same fashion.
The Full Conceal M3 Folding Glock 19 is a compact handgun with a footprint of a cell phone. 21 rounds of 9mm are ready to fire immediately once your pistol is drawn. The M3 is designed with a folded trigger safety that prevents the trigger bar from moving and engaging the trigger sear. This keeps your weapon from firing while concealed to give you the confidence to carry a loaded round in the chamber. The M3 is easy to conceal without the use of a holster if waistband carry is not a comfortable option for you.
Wait, But Why?
During our phone conversation, Full said he wanted the Full Conceal pistol to meet five particular benchmarks he considered important.
The first was concealability. There’s little doubt this mark was met. Although plenty of people successfully conceal a 19 or a 43 in their unaltered configuration, it’s true the Full Conceals can be carried in fashions where they do not create an obvious gun-shaped bulge. Full points (no pun intended) on concealability, then.
The second point was comfort/convenience. Among the comfort and convenience points argued by Full was that the M3D is more comfortable to carry in a pocket while seated in a car than a conventional Glock in an inside-the-waistband holster. Also, he pointed out, it could be transferred from the pants pocket to the car door pocket or vice versa when entering or exiting a vehicle without passersby immediately sussing out that the object in hand was a firearm.
The latest advancement in personal protection from Standard Manufacturing is the revolutionary new switch gun. The switch gun fits into your pocket and occupies about the same space as your cell phone. When in the folded position, the grip of the switch gun completely encapsulates the trigger to prevent an accidental discharge. Upon depressing a button, the switch gun immediately springs open as it is ready for the immediate and reliable discharge of five .22 Magnum cartridges. It can be folded into a very small form factor and stored in your pocket to conceal when not in use. Unlike any of its competitors, the switch gun features a large handle to provide a tremendous grip similar to a full-sized revolver which provides the highest degree of control and accuracy.
The switch gun is the premier style of high-quality folding gun available on the market. With the press of a button, our folding pocket firearms can become small enough to fit into your pocket.
