Gee, lets think, well doesn't the shop sell tires? Bingo, there you go. They feign some liability crap if they plug tires basically. As for plugging it yourself, go ahead and ride it. Use the tar plug, being careful to not twist the awl in two directions, only one. I have run several tires with the tar rope plug many miles with no trouble. Someone will surely post you shouldn't ride on a plug but that is a bunch of shit in my opinion, of course. You gotta judge that for yourself, but an awful lot of us ride with plugs and run the remaining life of the tire.
