I always practice shooting center mass if I'm training, I figure the bigger the target the better my chances of success are.

The head can be quickly moved (side to side) making that shot difficult. The body, not so much. It has to follow the head. So a center mass shot is much more likely unless they're a ninja. In that case. Just hand them your gun.

Imo, like everything else, it is situationally dependant. Center chest would generally be my first choice but in some circumstances, I would definitely shoot for the head.

Yes, definitely situational. Like below would require a headshot if one were competent enough to do so.

Spinal cord between the lungs is my preference. Even a miss would do some serious damage.
