Default No more Hogdon BP

Tell your high-power friends that they had better grab what they can find now, the pipeline is about to disappear:

I think there is still a German manufacturer (or somewhere) but I have no idea what it takes to import and/or find their BP. I guess we will have to make our own from now on?

Estes BOUGHT GOEX earlier this year, and it will not move either.
