Personally I don't concern myself with too close or too far or whatever. I concern myself with what reasonable and lawful action MUST I take to preserve my life.
We can argue about too close or too far, but the above statement addresses the only relevant question. If shooting is required to avoid death or serious bodily harm distance is just a detail. While I would not want to be in a position to have to shoot someone at contact or any other distance, I carry a gun and train with it because I can't control or predict what violent people are going to do. I do my best to be situationally aware and maintain personal space, but most of us are regularly in situations where we are in proximity to strangers. As TunnelRat said, we can't always choose.
