wrap them in aluminum foil (empty syringes) and sterilize for 30 minutes

I don't think I fully understand your question because my answer would have to be put the syringes in the pc and cook them. I'm thinking they would probably melt or deform. There are easier ways to do this however, try using an alcohol lamp and heating the syringe until it is glowing hot and use an alcohol rub pad or just some alcohol on toilet paper.

or fill them with distilled water put them in a oven bake bag and close it make sure the needles are facing up ( i think can't think of it off hand) and make sure there is room for the plunger to move back. P.C. 30 mins or u can do it with ur jars. just make sure u don't touch them when there hot because they will be able to bend very easily.

Or instead of using a pressure canner for a half hour, you can...

Sterilize syringes. 10cc syringes with 18 gauge 1-1/2" needles are best. Get the Luer Lok kind. I like B-D syringes myself. The needle can be sterilized by dousing in rubbing alcohol and the rinsing in sterile water. The syringe can be sterilized by drawing in 1cc of tap water, pulling the plunger all the way back, and placing in the microwave. Nuke for 5 minutes. The 1cc of water will be heated to steam to provide for a nice steam sterilization of the entire inside of the syringe. Easier than 1 hour in a pot, IMHO. Cap the syringe before removing from microwave. Some water will be trapped in the syringe, but don't worry, it's sterile.

Sounds much easier to me than using a PC.

Oh yea, it's from one of the spore print/syringe tek's. Don't want to take credit for someone else's hard work.

Wash the syringe out and then fill with clean water. Take the syringe and put it in a jar or anything that will hold it needle up. then put it in the pc and pc for a hour (what I like to do anyway). the needle is up cause the water in the syringe will boil and it will bubble out if the needle isn't facing up.
After a hour you have sterile syringes filled with sterile water.

Would Just sucking up some alchol into the syringe kill everything?

sure...but then you'd have alcohol in your syringe which would kill any spores you may fill it w/ later. you'd need to get that alcohol out by sucking up sterile water into it and flushing the alcohol out. so...it would be pointless to do that.

in a pot of boiling water pace a folded sheet of aluminim foil and your two part syringe (place in water in two parts) boil for 15 min. pull the aluminum foil out. pull the syringe out and place it between the folds of the aluminum foil. wrap the syringe with the foil. let cool.
when you need your syringe unwrap, insert the plunger, heat the needle and alcohol swab it, then suck up your solution.

I personally do not like using the microwave to sterilize syringes. I filled one up with a cc or two of water and nuked it for 5 mins. When I opened the microwave and lifted the syringe, half of it was stuck to the plate. Thats my experience with microwaves.

Yeah, they're cheap enough. Especialy if you buy them in bulk. But it seems like more and more suppliers are requiring a DEA number. And the cultivation supply sites are too expensive. Not to mention it might get you looked at. Don't think law enforcement doesn't pay attention to what's going on at the local mom and pop garden center either.
