- Right you are gentlemen, someone (some people) is/are doing them.
I've been doing them as an occasional impression for almost 8 years

that has attempted them are the King's Rangers out of Province of Quebec for
about 6 years now.
i started the research about 9 years ago with the helpful hints and
encouragement of Dave Owen, Craig Williams and Peter Warden. it's a very
simple impression...and uniquely warm for the "head"....as opposed to the
"shitter"....bearskin cap and all,... you see...
