Most people I've seen do it for well under a minute... probably 5 seconds is more like it!

We have thought about using medi-darts. The issue I have is most of the drugs I use need to be put under the skin. This is hard with a dart. I prefer to give the injection and that way can control how and where it is administered. I might use on once a year but can't justify the cost for such little use.

Skelly, If you ask on the health and nutrition board, you will probably get a quicker answer.
