    You could probbaly get by with those, but why don't you just pick up a case of 1" pins on the internet? That's what the rest of us do.

    Yeah I may give it to the bicep next time, and I can get them online, but I am thinking of going to a bigger town and buying them somewhere esle, it like pocket cash for 50 pin.

    You should be fine with those but just order 1" ones from the net.

    What's the purpose of pinning in all these spots other than the standard glute/quad shots? That's all I've ever used rotating the 4 but the most I've ever pinned was EOD ... I'm guessing the other locations are more for those who pin ED or does it help any to hit the other muscles (I read spot injections don't really do anything)?

    if you inject daily sometimes the areas need more rest then a week so rotating the other spots gives those areas time to rest. its not really for 'spot injections' just letting the muscle heal a bit more. i know sometimes when my wife hits/nicks a vein and i bruise im not trying to pop that area while its still bruised sore. so i rotate.
