George Zimmerman

Shops For Tactical Shotgun

8/22/2013 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822-george-zimmerman-Kel-Tec-tmzGeorge Zimmerman was on the hunt today -- for a shotgun ... TMZ has learned.

Zimmerman went to Kel-Tec in Cocoa, Florida ... a gun manufacturing company.  We're told he was asking questions about the legality of buying a shotgun -- specifically, the Kel-Tec KSG.

The gun in question is a tactical shotgun, often used for home defense.  It holds 12 rounds of 12 gauge shells.

And this is interesting ... Kel-Tec manufactures the PF-9 gun -- the pistol Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin.

We're told the owner's son took Zimmerman on a tour of the grounds, including the area where the firearms are assembled.   The photo of Zimmerman and an employee (above) was taken inside the assembly plant.

It's unclear if he actually bought the shotgun while he was there.

5:40 PM PT -- We were initially told that Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara was with him at Kel-Tec, but O'Mara tells us that's not true ... he was in court all day today.

Look at this dude smiling and taking pictures. That's why all this karma whites are receiving lately only makes me smile.

Good for him. He committed no crime, was defending himself against a wannabe gangsta, and was acquitted by a jury. Go George!!

Why is this even news? Zimmerman was getting his head pounded into the cement and acted in self-defense. The jury acquitted him. He should have never even been charged -- the prosecutions own witnesses backed up Zimmerman's story.

Unlike a lot of people who have an "opinion" -- I watched every day of the trial.. The man is NOT GUILTY... He acted in self-defense..

One would think he'd want to keep a lower profile, and not pose for pics, seeing as how he has threats on his life and all.

Why is this a news story, TMZ? The man was acquitted and he's not a convicted felon, so it is legal for Zimmerman to buy a gun---or 5 guns--- if he chooses..
