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.

1. He lives in FL where they don't convict
2. He's a complete moron who will kill again
3. He will get away with it again
He's a complete s***bag and has absolutely NO remorse for taking another human life.

Endorsement deal in the works. "I may not gun down black youth every day, but when I do, I choose Kel-Tek."

I'm happy for him, but why would TMZ post this story, everybody knew he would get a new gun... Now if he was buying a hoodie or a bag of skittles that would be TMZ worthy.

innocent man goes shopping, legally, for a gun, legally, which he can use, legally, under current usa legislation, to protect his home, legally. so am i missing the point of this story? or is it one rule for him and another for other people? interpreting the law in different ways to suit the agenda?

It's a Kel-Tec. That gun is more dangerous to the shooter than whoever he points it at. My shotgun of choice is a Spas-12.
