Florida man George Zimmmerman has reportedly landed a $400,000-plus offer for the gun he used to kill teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.
According to reports, Zimmerman has a legit hefty bid for the murder weapon.
George Zimmerman is projected to make big bucks from his ongoing gun auction — we’ve learned the current legitimate bid is $415,000. A rep for United Gun Group, the site hosting Zimmerman’s controversial auction, tells us the site’s been flooded with fake bids — the highest was $65 million — but it’s using software to sift through the BS offers.

Zimmerman had his Trayvon Martin gun post removed from an auction site Thursday (May 12).
In place of Zimmerman’s listing for his Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm firearm, the page said, without elaboration, “Sorry, but the item you have requested is no longer in the system.” Until that point, the gunbroker.com page had been viewed more than 185,000 times. (USA Today)
Buzz behind Zimmerman putting up the murder weapon went viral early Thursday (May 12).
In a listing on the website gunbroker.com, Zimmerman writes that he is “honored and humbled” to announce the sale of the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm firearm. Similar firearms normally sell on the site for around $200. “The firearm for sale is the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012,” he writes.
