“I was going to pull the trigger and aim for the chest and keep pulling it until the 17 rounds out of my dad’s Glock 19 was gone,” 17 year old Samantha Mayhue said, when a potential intruder tried to crack the code to the front door combination.
Yes, I know a Glock 19 only holds 15 rounds, but let’s not let that ruin the point of this whole story. If I was in front of a bunch of cameras after this had happened I’m sure I’d slip up and say something incorrectly as well.
But the 17 year old held her composure when it mattered and handled the situation a lot better than most kids her age would have.
In the past several months more than half a dozen break-ins have taken place on this same street, so this could have easily turned from a potential break-in to an active home invasion.
It was 3:30pm in the Houston area when Samantha Mayhue heard someone trying to break the code to the front door electronic lock. When the alarm went off the teenager went straight for her dad’s Glock 19 and prepared herself. But when the alarm was triggered the potential intruder ran away.
According to ABC13,
“It’s not like we’re trying to hide the fact that we have guns,” Mayhue said. “I don’t know who in their right mind would have the idea of coming in here.”
“I was going to pull the trigger and aim for the chest and keep pulling it until the 17 rounds out of my dad’s Glock 19 was gone,” Mayhue said.
Luckily, the alarm scared the would-be intruder away.
“Up until recently, things are going south. And things are going south fast,” Mayhue said.
In just the last several months, more than half a dozen car break ins have occurred on Mayhue’s street.
“They’re worried about their home defense. They’re worried about their safety,” said Josh Vaskey at Hot Wells Shooting Range.
“Daddy taught me right. I wasn’t afraid to do what I needed to do,” Mayhue said.
Mayhue said she wants to be a tactical firearm trainer. Her Twitter description says it all: Not afraid to love a man and not afraid to shoot one either.
