COCOA, Fla., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- George Zimmerman visited the Florida headquarters of the maker of the pistol he used to kill Trayvon Martin, an entertainment news website said.

Zimmerman went shopping for a 12-gauge shotgun at the Kel-Tec CNC Industries plant in Cocoa, Fla., Thursday, the website TMZ.com reported, noting the company's website states no firearms are available for sale at the facility.

TMZ.com released a photo of Zimmerman, grinning and shaking hands with a man wearing safety goggles and a Kel-Tec T-shirt at what it said was the manufacturing plant in Cocoa.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in July in the 2012 killing of Martin, who was shot with a 9mm Kel-Tec pistol, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported.
