Yeah, really appreciated that you got a petition going. Makes it more visible. I also appreciated the podcast you made with a GOEX rep. I have my suspicions why Hodgdon is going this route but it makes some of their slogans kind of ring hollow. Seems like they may have not been the steward they claimed to be.Hey folks, I’m the organizer of the petition, I’ve seen and received some concerns about the "donations" on the page, so I'd like to clear something up.
On 01 January 2009 GOEX was bought by the Hodgdon Powder Company and became GOEX Powder, Inc. The Hodgdon Powder Company’s philosophy is, “We are here today. We were here yesterday. We will be here tomorrow.”
Frankly GOEX will probably do better with a company that shares values with traditional shooters. Listening to the rep it's obvious that they are more focused on modern innovations that preserving heritage. I just can't imagine being exited about the firestick abomination.GOEX has over a 200 year history of black powder manufacturing in the United States and GOEX Powder, Inc. intends to be a good steward of this company’s history and tradition.
