Gas pipe supports

That works, use copper strap if it's copper pipe, though. A gas repipe isn't something I'd normally suggest for a DIYer.

Gas pipe supports

I hear ya ~

I did a complete replacement and added a new line for a stove about 12 years ago at a previous residence. I used black iron pipe and pipe dope/threading compound. I would go with black iron pipe again for the rigidity quality, around here its what home buyers like to see. What is the correct threading agent though, something called "Blueloc" ? I just need an update as to what to use for the threading sealant.
