Fleeing the scene does not look good and standing around waiting for LEO's with an empty gun is not very appealing either.
Thugs usually have buddies.
There are alternatives. I don't stop when my gun runs out. If a couple of
B/Gs survive to tell a lurid story of an enraged LAC pistol-whipping, biting off noses,
stabbing people in the armpits, shattering bones, and kicking BG's
jewels into outer space,
before he was finally overcome by sheer weight of numbers, well,
YEAH, I can accept going out like that...
