You draw and inject with different needles?

Just wondering how many people use a different needle to draw from so as not to dull the tip any for injecting? NOT asking to see if you use a larger gauge to draw with to make drawing up easier.

I do. I have a bunch of 22 g 1 1/2" that I dont use so I use the needle part of those to suck up the juice into my syringe and then inject with my 23 g 1" Pins are always super sharp so I dont have to harpoon myself while injecting.

I dont use a new one to draw every time. Usually use it atleat 3 times before I open another. I inject with a new one every time.

Yeah bro never inject with the same needle that you're drawing with. Number one-Needle loses sharpness after going through stopper. Number two-Needle loses sterility. Number three-Needles are inexpensive and an even smaller price to pay as opposed to an infection

Nope no real chance of infection if you do it the right way. If your mixing diffrent types of gear into the same syringe then i suggest you keep a pin on the side to withdraw and a fresh one for injection. But to answer the question it is not needed.

I'll draw with the same pin (18g) numerous times, then store it in a small bowl with isopropyl alcohol. Inject with a 23g or 25g once then discard it.

Yeah but chances are your doctor won't be injecting you with veterinary steroids.

Well that makes absolutly no sence ... your saying that the chemical is dirty? then why would it matter if i injected in with a freakin turkey baster or a sterile syringe? And yes you can do multi withdrawls with the same pin when mixing gear everything stays sterile if your good but i would say for the sake of your skin just to change.

I think the one thing almost everyone WILL agree on is that it is better draw with one and pop with another because of the pin has less sharpness after going through a stopper. The added sharpness makes a difference if you are on tren winnySuspension or injecting yourself daily.

I dont bother switching needles. I use Alcohol pads with Provodine Iodine to keep the stopper clean and I use that on my skin also, but I dont change the pins. If you want to, good. No harm in it. But as allready mentioned, doctors or nurses do not switch needles when giving injections, and I dont find it painfull to inject with the same pin that I put through the stopper, and I do ED or EOD injects, sometimes in multiple areas on the same day. Yeah but chances are your doctor won't be injecting you with veterinary steroids. This doesnt make any sense to me either. Do you think the sterile needle magically sterilizes the solution you are injecting?

u can draw with 18 gauge (may cause major holes in your rubber stopper) or 20 gauge to draw off and shoot with either a 23 or 25 gauge (for site injections)
