I think I get what you mean, but thinking through this particular situation, it seems like there could have been several opportunities to react before someone was on top of me with a gun pointed at me.

IMHO, this scenario describes the end game where I lose because I did not react to a stranger with a gun getting that close to me.

I think it would be a better exercise to discuss how you avoid getting into a situation where the BG has screwed a gun into your ear. Pulling the trigger is the last resort. Avoidance and deescalation come first.
