Anything to Worry About?

Hey, sometimes i get a little blood after i inject in the glute, but most times i get none. does that mean i hit a vein when i see blood? I dont draw back when i inject. just wondering. Thanks

most likely nicked one on the way out… happens to me sometimes (i dont aspirate anymore either… but i do pin with 23g and my blood is thin enough to flood in if im in a vein)

I use 31g.

my first cycle I got the needles mixed up and ended up drawing with a 23 and pinning with a 21 for the entire 12 weeks.

Careful with those 31g if there an 1" or over. I sheared one of in my quad last week when I struck a nerve. Wasnt fun digging that out.

Now I am only pinning traps, chest, shoulders and tri’s with slin, and back to 23g for legs and butt.

Anything under 25g makes me cringe

Why is that? even if you are only injecting 1ml of test?

I like comfort and I can’t imagine shooting with a 23g let alone 21g that’s huge haha, 25g is painless but 29g slin pins are just splendid takes more time drawing and shooting but well worth it

How the fuck did you get that out? The worst I’ve had to do was cleaning out an infection with a 16 , and there’s no fucking way I’m doing that again without local.

u backload those slin pins right?/

when im not feeling lazy ill draw with an 18g and backload my slin pins…

when im feeling lazy ill just fill a whole pin up and slam that entire puppy with a 23g in one shot and cry about it later.

Sometimes but usually I just warm up the vial then when I draw I just let it sit upside down then i go off and do whatever I gotta do and come back a few minutes later and it’s done

For some reason the brand I’m using now (well while I was on) is a bitch so I used 23g for glutes, and 25G for ventro, otherwise I too would rather use 25G only for pinning (21G to draw). As I only pin 2x a week or E3D on cycle, I only use 4 injection sites (Glutes and Ventro on both sides). I hate pinning quads, except for TRT amounts.

As for you guys using 29G or 31G, are the needles long enough?

I use 1/2" 29g slin pins for delts

If your low enough bf then yess. They work great on smaller muscles when ur injectiong only 1cc anyways. Examples being shoulders and tris

I see.

I don’t know if I’m a pussy or smart LOL, but by only using glutes and ventro, I’ll inject a particular site about 7 times in a cycle, and only once every 2 weeks, so I don’t think I NEED more injection sites. For small TRT level shots I use quads and 29G needles.

I just don’t see the need for delts, tris, etc. Maybe I’m wrong though.
