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.

It must be terrifying spending the rest of your life looking over your shoulders, examining every face, wondering if this is it. Enjoy, George. You deserve it.

Gee, why would Zim Zim buy a home defense gun? Maybe because he knows he might have to defend his home against the retards who have been posting death threats towards him since day one? Stay buttmad libtards

Thank Yahweh that Zimmerman is a free man and will continue to patrol neighborhoods fighting crime. I hope he can find peace and happiness after he had to defend himself against that thug Trayvon Martin. Hopefully he will sue MSNBC for defamation soon so he can live a comfortable life after all he's been through.

This ******* needs to focus on paying his legal bills, and not dropping 22 hundred dollars on impractical firearm. People beware this rent-a-cop is out on the loose and walking free.
