A west Houston gun store was the target of another attempted smash and grab overnight, but even a big U-Haul truck could not break through.

Full Armor Firearms on the Katy Freeway was hit around 4 a.m. Monday morning.

Three guys in a stolen U-Haul truck tried ramming through the front doors traveling about 15 mph.

Thick metal and concrete posts outside kept the truck from breaking more than a front window. The three men got away.

"We've been attempted burglary a lot of times but they never get anything. Twenty-one times. Twenty-one times we've been hit in six years," owner James Hillin said.
