Skin So Soft is the best repellent I have ever used. That is in Kentucky and while in the Marines. You will find the laws for carry in Kentucky are more user friendly than those to the south of us in Tennessee (ie. not being able to open carry in Tenn. without permit). Also, the Commonwealths is a concealed deadly weapons license which authorizes the carrier to carry any deadly weapon, switchblade, throwing stars, etc.
