    No Longer Then 1" For Thighs. Thats What I Always Use. But I Try To Use 25g. For Thighs. The 21 Is Better For A Glute Shot

    Well people I've been talking to in my town use 21G for glute and 23G for thights....everybody seems to use that....


    But I'm wondering...why do people use bigger needles for glute ? what is realy the reason?. I meen a big needle would hurt just as much in the ass as in the thigt?!

    Well you can, but I see no reason to ever use larger than a 25g

    Not true, there are fewer nerves and veins in the glute. We don't use bigger gauges, just longer needles for the glutes. I shoot with a 22 in the glute because the deca I was using was damn thick. No need to use a 21, but hey, its your ass.
