Wow! Never saw that one coming. Oh well...may he have even greater success in his future endeavors.

Sometimes people just need to do other things, for any number of reasons. It's not like Travis is leaving and he's not going to teach/instruct/consult any longer.

It's not like Magpul is closing their doors with Travis' departure either.

They will most likely both be wildly successful. Kudos to all involved.

Post from Travis on Facebook;


Guys I know there is a lot of confusion but after the show there will be more explaination,... More to come.

And NO Chris and I are not split up! LOL


Magpul will still be Magpul.

Travis Haley will still be "Dynamic".

dy·nam·ics: n. a pattern or process of change, growth, or activity.

He will do well, as will Magpul.

Interesting to say the least. Sad to see him leave Magpul, but I am really excited to see what he does in the future. Travis is a class act and I'm pretty sure we all wish him the best. At least he left of his own accord on good terms. I'm sure Costa will have some smarta$$ comments about this at some point. :)

As far as I can tell, this is just Travis's way of becoming less tied to Magpul on an official level, which frees him up to do all sorts of stuff for the ENTIRE industry. A wise move, if that's what indeed has taken place.

And why would that be?

As the others said, my best wishes to Mr. Haley and his family, for continued success in his future endeavors. I appreciate his contributions to the work at Magpul. He was part of a classy group of folks.

I look forward to seeing more of his work down the road.

Now this would seem like an ideal candidate for fueling a baseless rumor.

I saw it as suggesting Costa and Haley are still on good terms, as seems to be the case. It'd be unfortunate for Haley's leaving to be a reason that they can't share some good hearted ribbing, that's all I thought cbyrd556 was getting at.

In response to Dozer and SafetyHit. My comment was not meant to be baseless humor. Sorry if I offended ya'll. I made the comment about Costa making a smartass comment to Travis, based on their jovial nature with eachother that I find funny. It wasn't meant to offend anyone. Sorry it was taken that way. Have a good one.

Travis and I had an in-depth discussion at Shot and he will be continuing his very novel approach to gear and tactics.

He's a great thinker and the industry needs more like him.

Travis will continue to consult with Magpul Dynamics, and any rumors of the Travis/Chris partnership's demise are greatly exaggerated.

They won't be working together quite as frequently; but nothing can keep either of these two men from achieving their goals -- whether together or individually.

It's just another chapter in the books of their professional lives, and we wish them both only very best.

What’s this business about Travis lying about his credentials? Granted it just people commenting on the article but kind of took me by surprise.

...Granted it just people commenting on the article...

That should probably give you a good idea of the validity of those comments...

I'd at least wait for a reasonably trustworthy source before propagating a pretty nasty rumor...

I guess this explains why Travis is not in the new video.

Yes he is. First guy you see. In fact:

0:7
0:31
0:45
0:54
0:58

He's in there just as much as Chris, Mike O, and of course Mr. Fisher.

Best wishes to Travis! Was looking forward to train with him in November.

Mr. Haley is a skilled warrior, teacher, and forward thinker. Where ever he goes in the industry, he'll get a +1 from me. I wont be abandoning magpul anytime soon either, just threw a bunch of their parts on the bullet launcher :D

No offense taken. Just trying to understand the comment since humor is sometimes difficult to convey online.

Stay safe.

Interesting to see Travis and Rob together. Having taken some Magpul classes and seen Rob's TV shows, they seemed eirily similar in content and philosophy. I mentioned this to Travis at the carbine class and he said he had participated in a class that Rob had taught and noticed the similarity too. It seems that on their own Rob and Travis had found similar solutions to common problems. Convergent evolution I guess. I think Travis is also physically closer to ICE now too, I wonder if Travis is going to taking any role on TV shows that Rob is involved with. Not having Travis in the Magpul camp would reduce people's complaints about favoritism if he is reviewing gear.

I am always in awe of Travis' cat like moves and his dedication to continually challenging what can be done and how its done.

Travis is looking good. I noticed at the class late last summer that it seemed like he had really bulked up (in a good way). Getting good workouts when you're on the road isn't easy.

Here's to hoping that we see more of Travis now.

I saw those comments on Military.com... shame. There aren't a whole lot of men with charisma, experience, intelligence, and good looks who could have pulled off what these two did for the AR-15 industry. Whenever someone like Chris and Travis are successful they will always be criticized by idiots.

BZ Travis, and I too will be interested in your next move, training, and products.

(BTW, I heard Chris's behive hairdo was at half mast in mourning... ;-)

So strange for me to see Pincus and Travis together. Strange mix.

Not that strange guys... Travis was going to work for me at Valhalla before we shut it down.. he committed to coming to Colorado before the changes at VTC took place (or were foreseen) and then ended up with Magpul.

He sat in on CFS Instructor Development and was a fan of the program which lead to the conversations about working with Valhalla. The overlaps in concept and terminology are not accidental.

Looking forward to working with him more in the future with his new-found freedom.

Looks like Travis Haley has his website up and running and has located the business in Colorado.
