    Yes another pin thread, vets, what size pins have you transitioned into for comfortability

    When we first embraced the way of life we listen to local gym rats or someone that we assumed that didn't know what they're talking about because naturally we knew nothing, and for the selected few that had the ability to do research ahead of time good for you. Back in our days with many of our seasoned veterans whatever information we heard we took it as a gold standard, and yes that included 18-20g pins.
    After years of scar tissue, bad injections, infections and overall discomfort and scar tissue. The older you get it's equivalent to investing into a nice pair of golf clubs for that nice easy day out on the Green.
    You get what you pay for and ultimately you learn we've all been there and most of us have had some serious gushers some even squirting on the wall.

    I did not have a chance to photo the majority of my arsenal, I use 27g 1/2 and 5/8, 30g half inch, for quads, pecs , delts, VGs.. BD 1" 25g VG if I'm using more volume and also for glutes, I use an assortment of brands, ever 25g 1.5 for glutes when using blends, I mostly use BD barrels and I just change out my tips.. I unfortunately did not take a photo of all of my insulin pin..

    And if you're asking about the plastic case, I purchased this in the school supply section A few years ago for students to hold their pencils and crayons.
    I sanitize it regularly I keep fresh galls inside of it and alcohol available. I hold what I need and it stores very well and out of sight out of mind. Cleaning the surface with alcohol and laying down a fresh galls pad to break down and disassemble my tips and barrels go directly on top of that, along with multiple other methods of sterilization like wiping down bottles. Because of this practice I have not had an infection or a bad episode worth being concerned about

    Slins all day, every day. 25g x 1" is the biggest I'll go when doing volume.

    I occasionally do 1 in 25 in the glutes but as long as it's not a blend I'm okay, if it is a blend I'm going to bury it just a little bit deeper.. I saved the majority of my conventional oils at 1ml. Using other muscle heads, it's much more comfortable. No fuss no muss.. but God dang it my glute are still to this day the most sensitive..

    I use 27Gx3/4"for all parts of the body.


    30G for peptides.

    in the past I used 23 g and very long, then I move on to 25 g and now 27.


    obviously it takes more time for injection, but much less side
    You can't have my body, but I'll tell you where to find all my tools -> PuritySourceLabs.ru

    I'm not exactly sure but that's why I worded it to vets.. if you don't like the fucking conversation then don't fucking reply.
    If you want to participate then answer the fucking question.
    I'm asking veterans who have probably pinned more gear than you have done and 10 lifetimes. Really no need for the sarcasm or criticism. I'm dialing in specific types of gauges and sizes I'm not asking the generic question is a 23g okay..

    With the new carrier oils you can use smaller pins....But the thinner the oil causes other issues.
    I still use the big boys for glutes..22 x 1 1/2....25 x 1 for everything else..started with 21's...

    I'm currently using 22 1.5 inch BDs for quads and glutes and absolutley loving it. I generally use 3cc with these injections. And I also use 25g 1 inch for everything else. In my shirt run I've built up a ton of scar tissue in my delts and I try not to pin them anymore. The more I lean out I'm finding some more locations to pin.

    This is why I asked the question cuz I'm just curious on who's doing what, your protocol is equivalent to using a galvanized nail. I'm not suggesting that I never use the larger gauges in the past, but the initial reason of the post is to see exactly how and where everyone transitioned for comfortability, mobility and most of all to avoid scar tissue.
    I did use some of the big boys way back in the earlier days, only because it was all we could get. Those were the times when whoever had any product available in the local gym, we just bought whatever we could get whether it was a bottle EQ , or sust amps, Russian sust, Portugal or even Polish, and of course the occasional mexican dbol.. I remember back then we were paying 125 or 150, depending if the guy liked you or not. LOL...

    23G 1.5" I hate how slow 25g flows and how hard I have to mash the plunger. Plus when taking B Complex shots (best hangover cure) placing them deep in the glute they dont sting at all.
    Pharma oils tend to be thick also. I like deep tissue injections and smooth flowing depression of the plunger.

    I was using 23ga 1 but recently switched to 25ga 5/8 for most body parts. Glutes I don't worry too much about and will still use some of my 23ga 1.5 I have laying around. I try and go the smallest gauge for quads, though. I always have issues with pinning there.
