    1/2 inch pins???

    A buddy of mine recently stopped his habits because his girl found out. so he gave me his pinz and told her he flushed his stash though I am holding it for him for the time being. anyway he gave me about 40 half inch 25 guage pinz he said he uses for delts, pecs and tris. I am wondering if this is good practice, you know since I have them I would like to use them, but is 1/2 inch long enough even for these spot injections? I have always been told use 1 inch at least for spot injections and 1 1/2 for gluts and thighs but I would like some of your oppinions b4 I go using these tiny little things. Thanks in advance!

    Half inch *could* work, if you have *very* low BF.

    You need to go deep enough to get well into the muscle, and you're not supposed to insert the pin all the way (in case it breaks off). If you have places on your body that you think 1/2" will work, go for it.

    Good luck, just be aware that things like broken needles do happen. One time I was getting some blood drawn and the nurse couldn't hit the vein, she dug around for like 3 minutes. Finally she said she'd try the other arm. When she pulled the pin out she was amazed to see that the end was crimped closed (defect). She was in a vein the whole time but the needle was fu*ked. Just because things like this are rare, doesn't mean they don't happen.

    You can get 1 inch slin pins, that is what I am using right now, they work great for pecs, tris, bis and delts.
