Should be OK for spores, just not LC. Thing is, you want 10cc at least. I bet those are smaller. Check out reasearchsupply.com. The cheap exel brand is just great.

My friend has had trouble sucking up liquid mycelium with 18 gauge, he recommends 16 gauge or larger.

I couldn't even imagine using an insulin syringe for this hobby.  It will work though.  If the spore solution is done correctly you should have no problem.  Are you seriously thinking of using a 1cc insulin syringe?  That would inoculate about two 1/2 pint jars at the most.  I would do it the right way and order some syringes from one of our sponsors or try going to a feed and seed store to acquire a more suitable syringe.

30 gauge = needle size. Syringe size will be in mL, and you want one that is 10mL or larger.
You won't find it near you unless you are lucky. Or if you live where they are common.

Try buying a 16 or 16.5 needle. Those are prefect for all uses.
