Possible reasons are that (a) A lot of the bad guys you're likely to encounter today may be high on one or more chemical substances, which can make them both stronger and more immune to pain; and (b) it is not outside the realm of possibility for bad guys to be wearing body armor, whereas if I'm dashing down to the Quik-Mart for a quart of milk it's very UNlikely that I'll be wearing personal body armor.
