George Zimmerman visits Kel-Tec factory

George Zimmerman visits Kel-Tec factory

Maybe to thank them for building the gun that allowed him to lawfully defend himself against a brutal beating which put him in reasonable fear of death or great bodily harm?

Maybe, as is speculated, to check out tactical shotguns?

Maybe just because he is a private citizen who never has been convicted of anything, and is allowed to do it?

Maybe to show that he’s not intimidated by the mobs calling for harm to come of him?

Maybe to troll those following him around and watch his every move, like TMZ, which broke the story:

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.

Maybe all of the above?

Well, if the company has any sense, they will name one of their models after him. Or maybe add a “GZ” to the name.

Hmmm. Maybe a “ThugBuster GZ”???

GZ’s got the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and no amount of death threats or obama administration BS should prevent him from doing what he can to exercise those rights.

Maybe this is the beginning of some kind of business/employment opportunity?

No doubt Kel-Tec got a lot of exposure throughout the whole thing.

There was an on-line fund raiser go buy Zimmerman another gun. Kel-Tec doesn’t normally give tours or allow folks in, perhaps George was there for a fitting for a customized weapon.

On another note: I’ve heard good and bad about the KSG.



Should add that the KSG has a dual-tube magazine each holding 7 shells and one shell in the chamber makes for a 15 shot shotgun. It’s near impossible to find a KSG because Kel-Tec can’t make them fast enough to supply the demand.

    Kel-Tec can’t make much of anything fast enough. There are however a lot of PF-9’s available.

    Seven regular length shot shells, which are more powerful (loud) than necessary for inside use. It can hold more of the short shot shells developed for police tactical use, but I have not been able to reach a site reviewing whether or no this firearm can cycle them (filter problem).

    I’d love to have one, just because.

    I’ve burned a good bit of powder in a Sub-9, an excellent and reliable carbine, but less thru the 2000, a less expensive carbine with more plastic. Both are excellent folders that I think would be great for house and office use by people who are less skilled with handguns. The longer sight radius makes accurate shooting easier, and, as Ayoob pointed out, the muzzle of a short carbine is actually closer to the shooter than the muzzle of a handgun, improving firearm retention. The Kel-Tec CNC shotgun sounds very interesting.

When the first responders are just minutes away; when the guy bashing your head shows no signs of tiring; when boredom overcomes a stranger’s moral constraints; a gun offers a firm reprimand.

I hope they gave him a free ‘loaner’ until he gets his back from the Feds (if ever).

He looks great in in that picture. I see he’s losing that extra weight pretty fast.. must be on a killer workout routine. *snicker*

    LOL … the extra pounds were from his bullet proof vest. Seriously he was wearing one the whole time that he was in court.

      Vince in reply to Shane. | August 23, 2013 at 10:05 pm

      That’s true about the vest but he did put on the weight in a serious way during the trial. Even O’Mara admitted that he had put on an extra 120lbs while he was on bond and living in seclusion.

        MouseTheLuckyDog in reply to Vince. | August 24, 2013 at 3:07 am

        Possibly wearing the vest every day gave him enouygh of an extra workout to help him get started losing weight.

Perhaps the publicity will tell the idiots who are threatening him on Twitter, etc., that he is armed at home and they’d be best off leaving him alone.

Good for George! The best way to protect one’s rights is to exercise them.

Interesting Note:
Two thugs charged with murder of Christopher Lane are 15 and 16.
Two thugs suspected of killing Delbert “Shorty” Belton are both 16 according to latest reports.

All 4 are younger than baby boy Trayvon.

George is looking better 🙂 With all the news around I am sure I am sure his is glad he did not join the list of Chris Lane (killed), Shorty (the killed WWII vet), and the 13 yo (beaten), as well as all of the others.

What I want to know is exactly how Jesse J and Al S make their money – who is providing the shake down $$. I want to boycott whoever it is that is providing Jesse and Al with even a penny.

Also, I hope the DOJ stops ignoring hate crimes because it is not convenient for their message.

I hate that there is no edit button….

It should read … I am sure he is glad…

>>”George Zimmerman is once again making headlines…”

No, he’s not. You’re making him into a headline. He did nothing extraordinary, unusual or headline-worthy by going to a gun manufacturer. You fanatic little children in the media simply decided to make it a “headline.”

Is George Zimmerman the new Elvis?

MouseTheLuckyDog | August 24, 2013 at 3:16 am

Seriously though, it makes sense for him to pop up in different places.
It makes the more determined of his potential attackers ( and probably the most dangerous ) wonder where he is.

Henry Hawkins | August 24, 2013 at 10:06 am

My pocket gun is a Kel-Tec .32 semi auto.

George Zimmerman is Everywhere. He is like the wind. He is like the Batman fighting crime. He is a 21st Century Tom Joad.

“I’ll be all around in the dark. I’ll be everywhere. Wherever you can look, wherever there’s a fight, and some Hoodie goes MMA on a Neighborhood watchman , I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a Thug on Grass and Skittle beatin’ up a guy, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way Journalists make up news for ratings. I’ll be in the way detectives get demoted for doing their jobs, and when the Mayors contaminate evidence to score political points, I’ll be there, too.”

    That sutff was filed by an anti-white, black nutburger former jailbird/pseudo jailhouse lawyer who wouldn’t know a writ from a motion. He’s a loon.

    Double jeopardy.

      That would be a negative on the guy from Georgia, they would not have moved it to miami if it was. And a citizen can not make this a capital case. This is something bigger then that.

      Double Jeopardy does not apply to federal cases. With the addition of a hate crime or a civil rights violation it makes it a different charge pretty much.

I have three Kel-Tecs. A P11 (9mm) for the glovebox, a P32 (.32 ACP) in a pocket holster in the summer months when I’m usually in shorts and tee shirt. The third is the wife’s who carries a P3AT (.380 ACP) when she’s out and about. She prefers it to the S&W Model 642 (.38 shrouded hammer) that I had bought her previously.

I’ve had the P11 and P32 about 15 years. They are dependable and accurate, not to mention reasonably priced, as well. Three years ago the P32 wasn’t cycling completely and I called K-T about it. They diagnosed it over the phone as a weak return spring and sent me a new one, gratis. That fixed the problem, the only problem I’ve ever had with a K-T.

I believe George carried the smaller 9mm, the PF9 model when he defended himself.

He chose well when he chose Kel-Tec CNC.

    Love my P32, used it to qualify for concealed weapon permit. I’m a big guy with big hands, but with the longer mag it’s plenty to grip. Love the no-safety feature, too. Like many folks, I own multiple handguns, half of them semi-auto, and the safety on each is located in a little bit different place. In a hot moment, I damn sure don’t want to be fumbling with my safety. The P32 is only 3/4″ wide, low profile in pocket or waistband. Not a jam yet in over ten years. | August 24, 2013 at 10:49 pm

I have small hands so a standard size semiautomatic is really too large to comfortably grip. In a small carry gun, which would you recommend, Kel-Tec, Taurus or Ruger? Which caliber, 9mm or .380 ACP?

Let us not forget Hi-Point, made up here in Ohio…. 🙂

Their .45 ACP (9 round magazine) runs $199 MSRP.

I’ve dug around, and the biggest complaints seem to be:
a) They’re ugly
b) They need breaking in.

    Harperman in reply to Casey. | August 25, 2013 at 11:19 am

    I wouldn’t buy a gun that needs “breaking in”. That is a sure sign or either poor design or, more usual, poor quality control in the finishing process. You are much better off spending a little more money and buying quality. Of course it’s your life so if you want to entrust it to a poorly made firearm that is your business.


I see in the news today that Colin Powell is doing the talk show circuit shooting off his mouth about how the Zimmerman verdict is ‘questionable.’

I’d love to see the professor and/or Andrew Branca challenge him to a debate on the subject.
