Well yea, and that's my whole issue with taking chances and possibly leaving witnesses alive. Just blast the fugger and get to the damn liquor store while there is still time. Why miss out on your favorite libation while you waste time watching some homeless dumpster diver thrash about waiting to bleed out?
You see people were EC's, and that basically means that we leave cutting people to the lowballers. Take my advice and learn to pull triggers, you'll be better off in the long run.
