Why would I do that? We're only chatting about a film.
Going back to what we were saying, he's not the only character that may have suffered this fate.
Apparently he goofs slightly in the shot where he's spinning his gun (I read somewhere Johnson chose that shot deliberately, because it made him laugh), so maybe he did or maybe he didn't, again not mentioned in the film. I think Johnson assumed you'd just accept it, and not question it, although it is kinda irrelevant, so I doubt he gave it tonnes of thought....
