You better start. I’ve been pinning for 4 years on TRT and hit a vein in my quad for the first time about two months ago.
Aspirating is out dated even nurses in hospitals dont do it any longer. In 4 years I have never done it.

Depends on exactly where you pin. Without naming the specific small muscles in the glutes and quads, it’s is recommended to still aspirate in these specific unnamed areas. Delts and the majority of the glutes and quads don’t require aspirating but you have to know exactly where you are pinning or you will hit a vein. I move around my quads and delts to keep from pinning through scar tissue. Probably not necessary and more of paranoia, but that’s why I aspirate.

Here’s a link on it.

No reason to pin quads.

Am I right in saying if you Inject oil in to a vein in cause damage to your heart and even kill you? I'm sure I read about this happening to a pro BB and him nearly dying

Bro, even hospital staff dont aspirate anymore, and NO it will not kill you. You might get a metalic taste in the mouth, and smell something funny for a few minutes but that is it. I have done this for a minute now, and knicked veins, and pretty sure I was in a vein once till I pulled out and moved it a half inch. Oh and it might seize up your lungs a bit, and make you feel like your dying. But, it passes.

That's what I just started trying, but finding backfilling to be more of a pain and time consuming than just switching out the needle.
I just draw out of vial into Insulin Syringe, no back loading. Carrier Oil I use is Miglyol 840 draws very good.
