Having Gang members belnd in with the crowed is extreme realism and a gang member wouldn't wave a gun around in the street for no reason unless they were provoked. It's a little confusing, but I've noticed something, they tend to wear SIMILAR clothes and are often the first people to speak to you in the street and usually in a threatening manner.
one problem with that (i underlined it) most of the time they do drive the exact same car (or bike) as the rest of their gang. like in all of my examples in my post on the previous page =P and their cars are special versions of regular cars that exist in the game.
