I will try to rephrase the question, can a contact shot be justified, both legally, and ethically ?
There is no law stipulating distance what which a shot made in self defense has to be. There are numerous situations in which such shots have been made. There is no law stipulating where a person is to be shot in self defense.

Ethically? That is a personal issue between you and your conscious. After all, it is your life or the life of another that you are defending. You can let them be killed or seriously hurt or you can work to stop the bad person. A contact shot means you WILL hit your target.
