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.

I can't blame him. The jury pretty much told him he can chase down anyone he wants then shoot them if they object.

If I!d be him I'd make my home in another country. He will be killed if he stays here.

When I read stories like this.


P.R. campaigns to discourage invaders?


I remember the great Virgil Salazzo-line in the original GODFATHER.


"If I wanted to kill you - you'd be dead already."


The trick's NOT to shoot unarmed teens?


- that're basically minding their own business.


Then the Virgil Salazzo's of the World?


Have no beef or problem with y'all.
