George Zimmerman went shopping for a shotgun today, August 22, in Florida.
Zimmerman went to Kel-Tec, a gun manufacturing company, in Cocoa, reported TMZ. He was accompanied by one of his lawyers, Mark O’Mara.
The two were asking questions about the legality of buying a shotgun, specifically the Kel-Tec KSG.
That gun is a tactical shotgun, and holds 12 rounds of 12 gauge shells. It costs almost $1,200.
Kel-Tec also manufactures the PF-9 gun, which Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin with last year.
The son of the owner of Kel-Tec took the two on a tour of the grounds.
It’s unknown if he bought a shotgun while he was there.
Zimmerman was acquitted of the killing of Martin in early July. The fatal shooting took place in a Florida neighborhood in early 2012. Zimmerman says the shooting was in self-defense.
