I would rather send it flying off, since pulling the pin out with pliers isn't exactly fun. You don't hafta worry about losing the pin anyway, because you should be replacing it

I have re-used pins when putting on used axles and they worked fine. I have also had new remans that didn't come with a pin. Not to mention boogering up the new one trying to put it in the wrong side. (dohp!)
Although, it's not recommended, I have even put thousands of miles on a nail that I had to use(after bending the ends over) because the pin went flying before I got the craftsman punch.
It's also nice not to have to go looking for the pin after removing it.
