manual 2nd gear start

So I was reading in the manual vs auto thread how short 1st gear is on a Rubi, which I have, and I noticed it takes off no prob from 2nd, would it be bad if i habitually started from 2nd w no load, i.e. just me all of a buck fifty?

If you have the gears, it won't hurt a thing. I use to pull out in 3rd in my old f250.
