your wife is in line for ice cream at the county fair and you are waiting some distance away when you notice an evil-doer heading her way with a large Bowie knife. It's crowded and you want to close the distance to prevent collateral damage and hopefully get to her before he does but you can't and he lunges toward her slashing his knife and you must fire NOW to protect her?
I agree...far fetched
How about you are camping with your kids and see a pack of stray dogs approaching your youngest child in a "hunting/predatory" posture. You need to close the distance to dispatch the dogs without endangering your child and need to fire accurately somewhere along that forward path.
Yeah, that's a stretch too
How about you just practice shooting while advancing because you want to know you can do it if it ever became necessary. Yep, that will do.
