Agreed with all above, I've built many a Pontiac motor and always use the gasket. Don't know if you'll be OK or not but, I do agree that if you have sufficient oil pressure chances are you haven't done damage.

Rule of thumb in the future, if a buddy says you don't need something, but, whatever he says you don't need to put on doesn't take a pile of time, you already have it, and it won't stop your car from going fast...put it on.

Just sucks that you may need to pull the pan.
