Yeah, you should find it hard to think about shooting someone but need to have the instinct to do so when danger presents itself. People who delay often end up dead. I've never found it difficult to pull the trigger on animals (I only shoot em when I need some meat in the freezer). Some people get "buck fever" when they see something they are about to shoot but it never seemed to even occur from the start with me. Maybe it's cause I've been going since I was little with my dad. It's just part of living where I was from in semi-rural GA. I could shoot dear off my back porch.
In GA and Texas and many other states that support Concealed carry, When you shoot someone it's better to make sure they don't get back up and that is often taught in courses. Some places may have you end up in jail after hurting a robber breaking and entering on your property, even if it was clear he was there to do harm. If he's no longer living, he can't sue you or take you to court which makes it easier for everyone. If it was clear that you/someone else was in immediate danger at the time, no questions are asked. In Texas you can shoot people that come on your property and have the intent to do harm to you or your property (i.e. lawnmower or whatever is on your property) and your neighbors property so long as you and the neighbor have an agreement that you are to watch over each other's places when not home.
