Inside of my sub 1,600sqft house I have a worst case scenario shot of about 12 yards. At that distance I would be stopping an intruder from entering my child's room. To me that is about as iminent a threat as you can get.
In the real world I had to draw on two men attempting a home invasion next door. They were attempting to enter the home of my 80+ year old invalid neighbor. Luckily I had a rifle on hand. However, the distance was definitely closer to thirty-five yards than ten. Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
