According to the store's co-owner Richard Smith, burglars used a large truck to crash into the storefront window. Smith added that 8 to 12 suspects then grabbed at least 40 weapons from a cabinet and a display wall.
Sheriff's officials said the burglars were in the store less than two minutes.
An alarm activated at the time of the break-in and officials said the shop has security cameras.
