I have used some FMC and always use anti-shorts to protect the wiring against any sharp edges.It has always bothered me that this may not be adequate.
How do all you other sage sparkies deal with this issue?

Although I have used bushings for FMC where I have terminated it on a cable tray, I rarely otherwise use them or see them in use.
According to 348.28 they aren't required.
