Just plug the tubeless and keep riding. Why would it be the end of the tire? You don't even have to take the tire off and most times you can pull the offending object out of the tire if you notice it soon enough, plug it, and still have enough air in the tire for safe travel to somewhere to air up if you happen to not have a pump with you. I've got 10k's of miles on plugged tires. Never an issue. Got one in my rear anakee2 now with about 10k miles on it.

I converted my Xchallenge rear to tubeless for the above simplicity of dealing with a puncture.
