I have having difficulty finding an answer. I am a USCCA instructor, Certified Instructor in OC, and a Factory Trained insturctor with the Byrna Launcher.
The Byrna Launcher, for lack of a better explaintion, a pepperball pistol. It is legal to open carry pepper spray in florida for self defense purposes. The law says the container but be compact in size an hold no more then 2 oz. The Byrna launcher is about the size of a Glock. I has a magazine that hold 5 pepperball rounds. Each round is about 3 gram of chemical agent each. (there is approx 28 grams in an ounce). In my opinion the pepperball is the container holding the chemical agent (compact in size) and it would take about 18 pepperball to add up to 2 oz. total of chemical agent. The Byrna Launcher is just the delivery method (in my opinion) (the pepperball, arguably could be delivered in many ways.) Any Lawyers out there with an opinion. I have several students ask me that question and I can’t find an answer. I have contacted the local States Attorney’s office with not response and the Sheriff’s office with no response.
