COM, give a liberal dose until symptoms stop.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
Oh gee... pelvic girdle? nope... (my cannon's in ths shop, for mopping) COM 'til the threat stops...
One, very good shot? "Okay BG, hold real still now... I gotta drill your MO, and moving makes that nigh onto impossible... but I'm feeling mucho lucky today!"
It could be worse!

Right in the clock work until the threat is neutralized.
The collective responses are spot on. What you don't want to do is shoot once, look and see if the shot was effective, shoot again, look again, etc. Focus on the front sight and the threat and keep shooting (and moving!) until the threat ceases.

since the scenario calls for only one shot, would have to go center mass.....if it called for two, would still go center mass......

I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
I liked what Guantes recommended a while back, zip them up. keep shooting till the threat stops or you empty the gun.

First of all I glad he didn't have to use his firearm and the aggressive guy took off.When I took my training for ccw 10 years ago
I was told you need to draw an imaginary circle of 21 feet around you placing you and your love ones in the center because
anyone with a club ,knife get past that mark you will be hurt.I would always shoot at center mass as it presents the largest
target and the groin area if you hit the femoral artery the bad guy will bleed out rather fast. Our trainers told my class in most self defense incidents where firearms are discharged the shooter usually keeps pulling the trigger until the pistol is empty.
My training has always been to shoot center of mass. COM being the center of what ever mass is visible. I would hate to limit myself to only one round.
Don't do things you don't want to explain to the Paramedics!
Stupidity should be painful.
Depends upon which gun I had on me. Not being smart, that's a truthful answer. I can shoot some a bit better than others, and there is one gun I have.... I don't know why, but I'ld shoot the knat off a dog's nose at any distance without hurting the dog (but it's not a carry type gun).
Just generally speaking, depends .... but most likely upper center chest.
Although we would all generally say COM until the threat is stopped, there are situations that can and do occur where you may have time only for one well placed shot and that's it.
So, it's a consideration.

Situation happens that fast and close I train to point shoot so COM, How I train DTCM point shooting moving third shot is from high ready aimed.

If I'm reacting to a situation then I want the first good solid hit on the BG. If it is a hostage situation then you better be able to hit the kill button in the head. Are you that good?

What would MadMac do?
The only reason I can think of for taking just one shot, is carrying a relic "one round" handgun.
I'm with the majority, at contact distance, get off the "X", fire at COM until the threat is stopped, then scan for his buddies - if any.
