Balluster spacing

Just a quick question I have regarding balluster spacing. Deck will be no higher than 2 feet off the ground. Is my assumption of 2-3/4" balluster spacing correct? I know each town has different building codes, but I know there is a common spacing which most towns use. I know I should ask my bldg dept, but I already asked and I wrote it down, but I lost it and feel stupid to ask the guy again, he is kinda mean...lol.

Code says no more than a 4 inch space.

This leaves quite a bit of room to use your own discression. I put up a porch this spring and went 2 1/2 inch space. 4 inches just didn't look right.
