    Needle size and vial importance questions


    Is 22 gauge too big of a needle to pin with? its 22 x 1" and they looked scary big, got em at the veterinary store so it was the smallest 1" they carried... Just wondering if these are too big to pin with or if the pain will be manageable? Also, what is the importance of transferring the gear from a bottle into a sealed vial? I mean why can't one just draw the oil straight from a bottle instead of using a air tight sealed vial? I'm not saying i'm gonna try to draw from a bottle or anything, im just curious as to the significance of using a vial... Oh, and is 22" sufficient for withdrawing the oil from a vial too?
    Thanks

    yes 22g 1 inch will work make sure you push it all the way in. what kind of bottle? do you mean amp? if it is an amp you should draw through a filter.

    every time you open up the bottle bits of dust, bacteria etc, etc...will get in the gear. You will then be pinning all that, its a great way to get an infection or an abscess. 22g is a little big for my liking but im a *****. Get a filter, transfer your gear into a sterile vial and maybe, if your a ***** like me get smaller needles.

    I watched my buddy pin 3mL of sust and deca with a 16ga needle the other day. That was hardcore. Needless to say, it left quite the visible hole in his glute lol. He swears by 'em though, says they hurt less than larger gauges. I'll stick to 23/25ga thank you...

    well, you have the internet, if you have a mailbox to go along with that you have access to smaller needles.

    how many times can you use a needle if you dont use it to draw, only to inject?

    my personal opinion on reusing needles is: DON'T. reusing them only makes you more prone to infections. i know a few people who inject weekly (except for medical reasons), and their choice is to draw with a 20, inject with a 22. 20's don't seem too big imo... then again i've yet to personally inject.

    so, from hear-say, 22's aren't too big. and personal opinion on reusing is a definite no.

    Got a quick question. Can you use the same syringe but switch out the needles every time? Like 1 syringe and a ton of needles and just put the needle on use and then throw away the needle and repeat?

    You can use the same syringe a few times if you need to. Check the laws in your state and see if you can purchase syringes OTC without a prescription, as many states have laws like this in place because of junkies always reusing needles.

    100 Needles + syringes =<25$ at a multitude of places online, no reason to reuse them ever.
