Here is his comment on FB in reference to the Magpul videos:

I've had a lot of people ask me about this: Be careful buying training DVDs that 7 yrs old. If you know how adaptive we are in our training programs then you get my point... If you don't then here: DO NOT BUY THESE. "yes this message is approved by Travis Haley."

  Oh, the drama.  


I don't care, personally.  I don't watch the videos.  It seems akin to watching porn and thinking you're going to be good in the sack.

But I do find it funny that he's straight up saying "DO NOT BUY THESE".  Sure, things change, but not that drastically, in 7 years.

Whether it's Magpul videos or porn, I'm still jealous of their equipment.

Where's the Aerial Ops video?!?!
Fuck that set!!!

I'm going with Costa's Zombie series...



eta: Scratch that, looks like Aerial Ops is part of the Special Features.
The Complete Art of the Firearm Special Features set contains over 3.5 hours of new footage and training including Low Light Operations, Go Bags, rough-cuts of Dynamic Vehicle and Skydiving Techniques, and the complete Aerial Platform Operations.

The couple of "in-testing" magpul products that Haley was using in the video already seemed unnecessary (bad lever, angled foregrip, side-by-side magazine carrier thingy) and I just kinda ignored them.  Maybe that's what he's trying to steer people away from?

Aside from maybe less flipping of an AR to clear the magazine out of the well... what else has changed as far as actually using the guns?


It'd be interesting to hear what parts of the video are obsolete or at least what people feel is obsolete.

These videos are too far behind the dynamic curve. 7 years ago these would offer the dynamic paradigm suitable for operations against the Iraqi insurgency and Taliban but threats change bro. If you're running this sort of  ancient kit and techniques these days,might as well be packing a .38 in a basket weave flap holster and shooting from the  dueling stance. It's your life bro,I'm just trying to save it.

The Carbine/handgun are the really old ones.  A lot of the gunstuff/equipment they were recomending is old and newer better stuff is out there.  So I think thatss what he is saying.  Think AFGs, slings, rails, optics.

I'll reiterate that it'd be really nice if he follows up and elaborates.  It doesn't take much to say "some of that is good foundation, but we were using some gear/techniques that were fads, and it's important to know that ____ proved to be a fad, rather than the next best thing".






Or could be his admins made that post.

Elvis just tweeted... Don't buy my movie Blue Hawaii, my royalties ran out... oops...I mean, it's an old movie and love making is different now. You'll die on the street using those techniques.

Really I think this means that the divorce has gotten ugly. I bet Magpul is looking those contracts back over to see if they signed a non-bashing clause.

If it conserns you that much take a class from him and ask him or order his latest video on the subject.  That is how he makes his living after all.

Is this an admission that they were essentially teaching fads?


On the other hand, his Adaptive Carbine/Handgun series is really, really good, so maybe he's trying to help people get the most bang for their buck?

Honestly, I like the DVDs (my criticisms of it above are already noted), I like the videos he's put out on the side, and he seems to be a really good guy.

I think the rest of the posters in the thread have started coming to conclusions about why he'd say what he has, and that's why it'd be nice to hear something more about it - to give substance to his point, rather than have it look like what folks are currently taking it as.


Right now it seems to have only played out thus far:

"Old=bad."
"Why?"
"..."  (That's where I'd like to have a response.)

If his response eventually proves to be the same as yours "Buy new because I said old=bad and that's how I make my living after all."  ... well, sorry.  As a consumer, I'd like to know what's in the new product.  Why do I need the 2015 model when my 2008 model works fine?

"You have to pass the new course to find out what's in it."  


That's why I'm hoping he follows this up with something.

There's very minimal difference in the techniques or equipment used between his Magpul days and his current Panteao Productions stuff. Things do evolve but to suggest that something that was relevant in 2008 is useless today is, well, just not reality. IMO, the Magpul stuff and the present Panteao stuff are BOTH excellent.
