i was wondering it if is OK to have MC cable run vertically between two studs equidistant and not stapled to either stud. it is because i have a cable stapled to both studs in the same space.

is it even necessary to ever staple MC cable considering its armor? i would guess not but i still do it for the neatness of it.

unless fished inside cavities mc cable must be supported. in wood studs staples are the easiest.
