I don't drop Pug players from raids I lead. If guildies miss the start of a pug I let them know they have the next spot to open up. If a player is underperforming some of the other raid members are usually pretty quick to point it out (quite harshly in some cases) and it either improves or they get fed up and leave, thus opening a spot for your guildie.

It's not even about the equipment. If you know the fight and you know your class you can out-perform people who are better geared. I took my shaman who was in mostly heroic blues and a couple of purples into an alt-25 naxx run with some of my friends. I was lambasted for having shitty gear, but I came out #3 in heals at the end of the raid out of 7 healers (i beat out 2 priests, a paladin, and a druid. Yah there's no excuse for beating the paladin he should have owned my face on heals). Due to my knowing the fights, knowing when big heals are necessary, and knowing my class I was always one of the last healers standing when things got hairy and we cleared the instance completely with better than half of the players in lackluster gear. We didn't beat thaddius's enrage timer due to stupid people but we still killed him. We killed KT with about 5 people still up. It was messy, but we did it.
