    Use the same needle for drawing and always a new needle for sticking

    sometimes. depends on what, and what volume. I can survive a 22 in the glutes, but anything smaller than that takes forever to draw anything, so its easier to have an 18 to draw, and 23 or smaller to use

    I have done it both ways but I prefer to draw with a 18-20 and shoot with a new 23.

    I am currently drawing with 23 and shooting with 25. But that's just because I have some 23's i need to get rid of.....does take forever. Think ill get a little thicker guage from here on out. Eh, live and you learn.

    Always mate, once that needle is exposed to the air it's not sterile. Once it breaks the vial it's now covered in bacteria and dull. Definitely replace every time

    Not to mention dulling of the blade.

    People should use filter needles drawing from amps but I know alot that don't

    somehow it seems less painful. it may be like the difference between 27s and 25s in the delts. Although the 27s are smaller, they end up slower so stay in longer (and you are more likely to jiggle it the longer its in), plus since you are squeezing harder you also have it leaving the needle at higher pressure into your body. I'm just guessing thats why.
