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.



update_bar
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.

He reported more than 40 people to the police.
Is he going to report 40 more people to the police?
Is he going to
claim again that he doesn't see a teen boy's face and somehow contradicts himself by saying the boy looks like an adult?
Will he tell the 911 operator again "these *******s always get away"?
We all know what this dead meat waiting to happen-waste of air meant to say....
This deranged racist idiot wouldn't have a chance if he calls the operator, taunts me & takes out his gun & tries to pull the trigger.

For your younger readers....Not ONE network tonight chose to report on Christopher Lane...Even if you feel that George Zimmerman was guilty, it doesn't justify race crimes against whites or any other ethnic group.

I see someone is not going away quietly. Being used by the NRA. Well at least I know his attorney will be collecting his hourly payments and will leave Georgie broke. Zimmerman's brother obviously wants to be a celebrity. I still remember a young black man falsely accused of burglary before being shot down in the very HOA his family belongs too.

Sounds like he's afraid of something.


That, or he's carrying a lot of guilt.

"Just buy a shotgun", Joe Biden says.

c'mon TMZ, get your **** straight! it isnt 'Kel-Tec manufactures the PF9 gun -- the pistol Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin.'

it should read 'Kel-Tec manufactures the PF9 gun -- the pistol Zimmerman used to DEFEND HIMSELF AGAINST Trayvon Martin.'
