So, you would take the shot, with BG's finger on the trigger, if you had angle? Which angle would be ideal? Based on which caliber (I assume 9mm because of your screen name only)?

Have you ever been under the effects of adrenaline? And if so, to what degree? There's a difference between adrenaline "Dump" and increased adrenaline in your system. I've "been there" with both. It's a marked difference.
I believe that any perp is likely to have some effects of it, to a greater or lesser degree, depending on his experience in these behaviors (high risk, fast paced; stop and robs or smash and grabs).
I don't believe that shooting a person with his finger on the trigger and attempting to direct his attention off the intended target are "a wash" regarding risk. It's only my opinion. But I am arguing for it. And have yet to see anyone with evidence that it's incorrect.
It could be worse!

why are they fools?... 1st lets look at the logic as to why they do..
1: JHPs "might" not expand ... ok.. so you will pick a bullet that 100% wont expand for 1 that "might" not?
2: it will punch through heavy winter clothing..... seriously?... find me a winter jacket that will make you bullet proof VS 9/40/10/45
3: it will feed better... sell your POS gun...
4: it will go through car doors better.. 1st, tell me the stats of civi's that get in gun battles VS cars... 2nd ..if you think you live someplace you might find your self in roaming gun fights VS cars, i suggest you move
hardly... bullets made for paper and people are totally different in damage effects..
