Skip to comments.Zimmerman Meets Manufacturer Of His Gun
Posted on 08/27/2013 7:43:17 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
George 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.

No ones business what Mr. Zimmerman chooses to do with his time and/or money.
Boy do I love the look of that KSG!!!
Obviously some one in the plant either sold the photo or sent it to TMZ. It is too bad that some one whose living depends on making firearms would do this despicable thing.
this is not good publicity - did Zimmerman know his travels are being recorded by the press??
This must be a new edition of the KSG. Mine holds seven shells in each tube and one in the pipe. Amazing tactical shotgun.
Right on about TMZ...
Interesting that both George Zimmerman and Paula Dean are, or were, Democrats, Zero supporters and had no real racist inclinations from what I could tell. Yet both were demonized by the media... The Left eating their own, I guess.
Apologies for maybe being Captain Obvious and thanks for the post.
IIRC, Mark O’Mara set this up. He wanted it seen.
The KSG looks bad-backside but... It has some usability issues. Look up Hickok45’s review of it on YouTube. I trust H45’s outlook on firearms, and the KSG is just not quite there yet.
I don’t know. There were feed issues and IIRC sharp edges as well as an all too easy short stroke problem.
And the issue of switching over mag tubes while under pressure and trying to rack another round.
Saiga 12 for me.
Agreed, but you have to hand it to Keltec for fresh ideas.
I know zero about this weapon. Where is the firing mechanism, right next to your ear?
>> this is not good publicity
Aw, cut the concern troll crap. Z was **acquitted**. He is guilty of exactly NOTHING. He’s a free man — free to do what other free men do. Like tour weapons plants and buy shotguns.
>> The Kel-Tec KSG is pretty cool.
It looks awesome — and the idea of 12 rounds all loaded and ready to go is appealing.
But I think I’ll keep my Mossy 590 (8+1, that’s not so bad capacitywise) and put my gun money into something else.
>> Where is the firing mechanism, right next to your ear?
Mossberg 500 tactical for me. Though I did give up on the pistol-grip only option and put an adjustable stock on it. Pistol grips look cool in the movies, but try putting a few rounds through it quickly and accurately - not bird shot, high brass buck... I’m no shrinking violet but even I couldn’t handle it comfortably under stress, let alone the wife. (who is slender)
Oh yeah, I like the idea, the look, etc. I think when they work the kinks out it’ll be great. From what I’ve seen of them they are entirely usable as-is, just there are things about them that could be better.
Its a bullpup it ejects behind your firing hand, right under yer head.
TMZ is stalking the guy, lol. Those clowns.
Pistol grips are BS on shotguns IMHO
See post #21
Ugh. Well, I guess that’s the trade off for the extra long magazines...but that has to be deafening, even with ear protection.
Thanks...I looked at it.
I guess it will be good for his defense fund. And since it looks like he will need defending in a civil suit and/or a Federal Civil Rights case they had better do whatever they can.
By actual test I'm a believer in that statement now.
If I want/need to fire from the hip (a-la pistol grip style) I still can with the stock under my arm. No change in the effective length. With the stock though, I now have the option of bringing it up to my shoulder for a more aimed shot.
I would not use a pistol grip with anything over 7.5 field loads, and whats the point in that?
Put some 3” 00 buck in there and you’ll break your hand.
>>Pistol grips are BS on shotguns IMHO
Dozens and dozens of (shooter) fails with them on youtube. Some serious. I can’t see the point of them myself. Folding stock, yes, but not just a pistol grip.
They look sharp. /s
Paula committed the unforgivable insult of telling off on Michelle's eating habits when she appeared on her show. Pay back is a bitch in that world. Zimmerman was just unlucky enough to be to white.
Whoa!! - the man is free and has a life to live free of beiing spied upon and publically criticized. As I said, this is not good publicity.”
Being one of my favorite people....I always enjoy reading about Geo.Zimmerman !!!
I guess I misunderstood your point, then; I apologize.
I do it all too often
I didn’t know that bit about MOo being on Paula Dean’s show. That explains it, then!
And copy that about GZ. With that last name, of course he’s white, right?! /s
Exactly why I left my Beretta 1201 FP just like it came from the factory. Why mess with perfection?
Hey, great review. Thanks for the reference. I watched a bunch.
