to be honest I had a little trouble following your post but I think I got the jist of it.
1)If you injected into a vein I think you'd know right away.
2)when you aspirate you are looking for small bubbles that enter the barrel of the syringe. That tells you that you're in muscle
3)Some places you inject will hurt more than others. I can't really explain why it's just the way it seems to go. Some injections hurt terribly, some are painless.
4)Bruising is normal, the first time I put 3cc in my glute I got a gigantic bruise there. Not so much anymore but I do try to keep my injections under 3cc. hard to do sometimes.
hope this helps you

im injecting 1ML(200 MGS)of test e when i aspirate i havent looked to see bubbles ! i was told to just pull and if its firmly there and see no blood shoot away ! **** does that mean i coulda shot 2 shots (both of the ones i done alone) and missed the muscle?

last question is, when i been aspirating i been looking for blood only not bubbles and ive shot 2 times now should i assume it went in the muscle or is there a sign that you missed the muscle? also thx for reading i know it was a ramble post but my heart was racing after the last injection;d

Its ok, my heart still races a little when I do a shoot. Its hard to miss the muscle. Your good to go.

you won't see bubbles like carbonation in a soda. when you get ready to inject, you squirt all the air out of the pin right? so when you insert and aspirate , you're looking for a small pocket of air to form right where the base of the needle is in the syringe. that make sense? even if you feel tension, you could be drawing up a small amount of blood and you won't know it if you don't look. any blood at all, pull out and try again. as a tip if you haven't been told already (since you're new to this) i recommend drawing up with one pin and then putting a new one on for the injection. a fresh sharp pin is always nicer than one dulled from the stopper.

Good advice here. I'll add a couple of pointers. RELAX! Absolutely relax the muscle you are shooting. Use a fresh, sharp pin, 23 ga or better yet 25ga. The 25ga is pretty small and it takes a while to push the oil through it, but that is actually a good thing. Also the hole is smaller... less tissue trauma. When your hand shakes or the rig moves, the tip of the pin is more likely to not move around and cause more trauma, because of the flexibility of the small pin. Always buy 1-1/2" pins. Too short of a pin is useless for glutes and in many users, quads or pecs, too. Longer pins can be used wherever you would use a short pin. So, no need to buy short ones. Be sure you go in deep enough. Don't press the ferrule of the pin against the injection site... this can push debris in there. Shower first, if possible... for extra cleanliness and also to relax your muscles and your nerves. Hold the rig steady as you push the oil in. Go slow... slower is better. If it takes a couple of minutes to inject, great. Warming the oil first is a good idea. When shooting something generally painful like prop or sust or T-400, try to dilute it in the syringe with something less painful like deca . Before pulling out, have your alcohol swab ready, sort of leaning against the pin as it comes out, and clap it right down on the site when the pin is completely out. Press hard for a moment to forestall any bleeding, then give the muscle a nice deep rub to help distribute the gear a bit. If it forms a discrete pocket, it can eventually form a sterile abscess. That's about it... happy shooting.
