    Pepper spray in South Carolina

    I normally carry a 2 oz pepper spray which is legal in Florida, actually just about anywhere except in South Carolina. I'll be spending some time in SC, and I see that the limit there is 50cc's which is about 1.5 oz. Does anyone know how strictly this is enforced? Of course it's in my pocket and no one will see it unless I have to use it, just wanted to check. Actually in FL because I have my CCW I can actually carry pretty much anything I want, that doesn't hold true in most states.

    I am not sure how strictly it is enforced there, but I would likely stay within the law. On the outside chance you had to use it, you wouldn't want the chemical device to come into question.

    At the risk of legal problems, wouldn't getting another, smaller OC spray to conform to NC laws? They're what, $12? Seems a good trade-off.

    I dont advocate willingly breaking a law, however, I would rather carry an extra half oz of OC than carry nothing. I personally would prob not fret it too much and carry on with life as normal.

    Very nice and informative post! In my opinion,I am not sure how strictly it is enforced there, but I would likely stay within the law. On the outside chance you had to use it, you wouldn't want the chemical device to come into question.

    Just to clarify one thing, NC law allows 150 CC or about 5 ounces where as SC is the one with the 50 CC limit or about 1.69 ounces.

    Yes, I realize that, that's why I think I specified SC in my post as being the problem child.

    If you read the post I quoted you'll notice they stated NC, not SC. I realize you were asking about SC but apparently they didn't.

    Maybe if you have to use it, you can just stop spraying while there's still 0.5 oz left?

    Any chance that 2oz is a nominal number? Maybe they're actually filled light.

    What did you get? I forgot to write earlier that I had read (here?) about Freeze +P pepper spray that had not only pepper but a slight 'Mace' component and a dye that stayed on the skin for around 24 hrs. That sounds like a really good product!
