Cost of syringes and needles are so damn cheap.

I got 100 thermo syringes with 21g 1.5" needle, 100 BD 23g 1" needles and 100 insulin syringes for $42.20 including shipping.
Dont see any reason to reuse.

Sorry hate to go against the crowd but I reuse the syringe part for like 5 times or more but new needle tip every time so if it's sterile in the syringe and your gear is sterile I don't see the problem and I reuse the draw needle 1 year later no problems ....

Why? To save $6/cycle?

Ever get a blood infection, how about vomiting for 2 days straight, cold sweats, chills, dropping 15 pounds in only a few days, not being able to eat solid foods for 10 days, laying in a hospital and having to be on a saline bag on one side because you're dangerously dehydrated, and a bag of antibiotics on the other because you're almost septic, while doctors try to figure out how this happened.

Sound like fun.....keep reusing needles.

Bump- food for thought worth a bump- Never in this forum would I think to see this question, never mind people actually using needles over. I use one to pull, but once it touches the skin thats it. You can get needles really cheap. There are few vendors and I wont use names, one guy is way overpriced, so if you are that hard up for pins, shop around. I usually pay never over 10 bux for box of slin pins- NEVER

Shit I buy a box of 1.25", 25ga with the 3cc barrels from Walgreens; $12 for 100. Throw in some 21ga 1" needles for drawing up and I'm in for about a year, 20 bones.
