Over 100 firearms were stolen from the Limpopo Arms and Ammunition shop on the East Rand.
Five suspects - all armed - fled in a Silver Mitsubishi Triton, which was recovered nearby.
Police spokesperson Captain Pearl van Staad said an unknown man first entered the shop and asked a manager about seeing some firearms.
"While checking the counter (stock), the male pulled out a handgun, a Glock pistol, and pointed (the firearm at) the manager and the other two staff," Van Staad said.
He instructed them to open the door and then two other men entered the shop.
One of the other men was also armed with a pistol.
Van Staad said the the staff were ordered into the strong room.
