TWO masked raiders fled with shotguns after a terrifying raid on a couple's home.
Police today urged anyone with information about where the guns are now to contact them immediately.
The two intruders - one brandishing a crowbar - burst into the couple's home in the Holmfirth area at 7.30pm on Friday night.
They pushed the man, who is in his 50s, into his chair and demanded the keys to his shotgun cabinet.
They got the keys and stole three shotguns, a Beikal, a Mauser and a Cooey.
They also took some 12-bore ammunition and some 410 ammunition designed for smaller shotguns.
They also took a brown leather cartridge belt.
Det Con Russ Conlon, of Kirklees CID's intelligence unit, said: "It seems the victim had been deliberately targeted by the thieves who wanted to steal his guns.
"It is a major concern for us when firearms and ammunition are stolen. It is vital that anyone who knows anything about this robbery contacts us immediately.
"We are concerned as to why these intruders wanted the guns.
"People must talk to us if they know anything."
The Examiner revealed early this year that up to 100 guns - including two Uzi sub-machineguns and an AK47 assault rifle - could be held by criminals in the Huddersfield area.
A special police squad has been set up to tackle the problem.
Police are not saying where the victims from Friday night's robbery live.
Both robbers wore balaclavas.
The couple only knew they were in the house when they walked into the living room.
One of the raiders is a powerfully-built mixed-race man around 6ft 2in tall.
He wore a dark padded jacket and a dark jumper.
The other man is white or mixed race and 5ft 8in tall.
