    Visiting Michigan

    I will be going to Michigan soon and will not be making the calls (where we go, where we eat, where we stay, etc). So unfortunately, I will not be carrying. I was wanting to find a good pepper spray that is legal in Michigan and the laws that pertain.

    Thank you.

    Must do if you end up in Ann Arbor.

    Go to Zingermans Deli (Not the Bistro), the deli is Next to the farmers market on Detroit Ave. (Kerry Town)

    MI is 2% OC spray. Fox 5.3 is legal.

    MI also honors every resident permit. Carry here is no problem. Bars, church, schools, college classroom/dorm, seating cap. 2500+, casinos is pretty much the list.

    Why aren't you going to carry? MI has the worst economy of the states and down state is getting worse. Come to MI and come packing.

    My Mother-n-law is getting married and will be in a church most of the time, I will not be driving my car, and my future step father-n-law's mom looks down upon guns (whom my wife and I will be staying with). I would not feel comfortable keeping my weapon in the car.

    alrighty then, as tubby mentioned, 2% OC is the civilian limit. PEPPER spray only, other chemicals (mace) ar illegal. Electrical devices are also illegal...you didn't mention it, but I thought I'd bring it up anyway. Fox labs has a good rep, and quite a sting as I recall.

    Welcome. Have fun. Enjoy the scenerey, and do us a favor and buy a couple cars while you're here.
