What to do with a design for a firearm

OK, I'm not an engineer by any stretch of the imagination and I'm fairly new to the gun community but here goes. An idea came to me and I'm wondering what are the first steps involved in getting an engineer or manufacturer to look at it. I really like it when gun manufacturers think outside of the box and come up with an innovative idea. I'm just an art teacher with a background in graphic design, I don't have the resources to make a prototype and it's not something I'm sure enough about to quit my job and go for it. It's just an idea, but if it works, I think it will revolutionize concealed carry. I know, I know, probably a million other people have said the same thing. Anyway, I'm wondering if I should at least get a patent or copyright on the idea and sketches before I just put it out there..... If anyone out there knows what's involved with how a gun goes from a concept to a product, I welcome your input. Thanks.

I would think before you go too far you get a patent to offer legal protection then pursue your idea with a manufacturer. I have zero experience in this area so even though I'm an internet expert I can't offer much advice on how to move forward. Without the patent you let the cat out of the bag and it's everyone's cat. Get a patent and go on Shark Tank.
