    injection spots and pin size

    What are your favourite spots to pin? Worst spots to pin?

    What is your favourite gauge of needle to pin with?

    Glutes and quads favorite, anywhere else least favorite. 22x1 1/2 for glutes, 22x1 for quads. Anything smaller than 22ga I have trouble pushing the oils out, and end moving the syringe around

    22 terrifies me.

    But first cycle pharmacist gave me all 23g instead of 25.

    So I didn't know the difference until I looked at wrapper one day, as soon as I became aware, it started "hurting"

    Traps- how do you miss the veins without really being able to see them? I do a most muscular and have a shot load of veins in the traps.
    Never did forearm or lats. Recommended??

    Ever try VG?

    I did traps once. Only once. Calves twice. Twice was too many times.

    Lats are awesome. They will hold a ton. A little awkward but it gets easier.
    Forearms only small amounts for me. But my forearms are smaller.

    They do for me. You can get longer needles than 1/2 inch. Slower but pain free.

    Doesn't it take forever to draw with 29g? Or do your slin pins have attatchable needle?

    Draw with a regular syringe. Pull plunger from slin pin. Back fill slin pin replace plunger.

    Cool trick. I need better slin pins though these are 31g and take forever to pin with. I'll try to find 29g luer lock needles though.

    About pinning late, I have done this a couple times successfully, but sometimes the oil leaks and forms a subcutaneous depot lol. Any tips on this? Shooting from the wrong angle?

    How about traps, are they forgiving or do you have to learn how with these too? Calves seem like a tricky spot too, have to learn these as I'll start pinning daily next run.

    I shoot quads with 25ga 1in exclusively.

    I draw with a 23ga 1.5in. The needle isn't so thick it'll tear up stoppers and the length will get to the bottom of an amp.

    The syringe also plays a part in it. Coud start talking about thermodynamics and calculate the force needed with different size needles and syringe diameters but think would bore everyone to death.

    The bigger the syringe the bigger the force you have to apply to plunger. If you have a 10ml syringe with 25g, if the oil is not cut with some EO if will be impossible to inject.
    Thats why I use 1ml insulin syringes, the ones you can change the needle, not much force needed with 25g, even with thick oil. Now, for nebido I have to use 5ml syringe as its 4ml shot that is supposed to be shot in same place to keep the drug characteristics, so I have to use 21g. Last nebido shot only had a 10ml syringe, shot it with 20g, otherwise its almost impossible to inject it in glute.

    Shoot most of the stuff in glute, shoulder and bicep. Thats 6 spots right there, can add triceps, quads, lats and chest but not really much point as I only inject 3-4 times per week on cycle.

    Hmmm, maybe the syringes I'm using (5ml) are the reason I didn't have any luck with 25 ga

    Yes, that would be the case. Can even almost destroy the plunger with your thumb trying to push it out.
