I don't disagree with this but just thinking.
It seems to me for an average shooter there is a big difference between getting up from a bench seat at a range, walking up to the shooting line, properly gripping your weapon with both hands, squeeze off a round or 2 at a stationary body target with nothing behind it but a dirt hill in comparison to being in a store, unsuspectingly have to make several split second decisions, draw your weapon from under your clothing assuming CCW, aim at a possible moving target and prevent accidentally shooting the clerk could be a bit different.
Aiming for the center mass is fine but just hitting the right person and wounding them to the point the threat is no longer to me would be fine.
