Jango? Why not Boba? Jango is a coward, as he hires mercenaries to do the jobs he was hired to do. He is also an idiot. Jango used two wrist-rockets on two guards, who were right next to each other, and who were running away. One rocket or two blaster bolts would have worked.
For fear of stirring the hornet's nest with you Draco, but I need to point out that hiring another to help you out is not cowardly, but "outsourcing" and smart. Why close the distance with your enemy when someone else assumes all the risk and you reap a good majority of the benefits?
As far as the rocket thing, I say that is smart. "Someone worth shooting once is worth shooting a bunch" was a saying we had in IRAQ, and using rockets is in line with tthat thought. Were they running away as in fleeing the battlefield for good, or were they more apt to retreat temporarily, regroup, reorganize and then reattack or were they seeking high ground to press the advantage?
We will never know as Jango silenced the question as they will be doing none of those, thus increasing his odds of mission accomplishment and eliminating the chance of being killed by a "lucky shot".
Besides, unless you are in a Jon Woo film, people can't shoot that great with a pistol at anything more than 25 meters, and hitting a moving target, forget about it. Not impossible, but not likely. The rocket is an area weapon and is almost assured a lethal hit.
Our military's elite units have become fond of dropping smart bombs dropped in pairs as opposed to getting into a gun fight, even with our superior training and technology.
Finally, if you are in a fair fight you should rethink your tactics.
