You probably need incognito Tacoma for that.

Nothing says “I like to keep it simple” like carrying breaching tools in your truck, but not shit paper.

Jebuz! When your your trendy overland bro Tacoma gets jacked in SoCal those lifters are going to hit pay day with all the goodies you leave lying around.

Overland Tacoma Bro + Tactical Bro

Two stereotypes merging. Probably listens to Georgia Florida Line.

More like Overland Bro meets LARPing bro.

The back seat storage gave me a headache.

‘If I ever roll off the road on an iced over closed backroad’.... if you own a Tacoma that’s actually a very plausible and common scenario.

If I had to guess who’s on a closed road in the backcountry, good odds it’s a Toyota driver.

That's not likely for Travis Haley. I recall him claiming to be an ice climber and posting pictures of him getting guided up Stairway To Heaven. That dude is an Instagram marketing product placement hero.

He is incredibly good at what he does, no denying that.

Still think he needs to add a roll of tactical butt wipe to his bug out mobile. Do they make FDE wiping papers?

Tactically operational butt wipes with bio mechanically correct dispenser. You gotta be able to run them when you got the runs.

Made me cringe! Who pulls out their pistol and puts their hand over the end of the barrel. I stopped watching there. I carry every day and I wonder if he has ever fired a gun or if his whole act is a gimmick to make money. Someday he will be on one of those videos of "what not to do" when he shoots himself...

Travis Haley is a *very* successful firearms instructor and industry personality. If you've ever seen the video of a BlackWater contractor shooting insurgents during a prolonged rooftop firefight from the early-ish days of the latest Iraq war, that's him and I think that video is what really catapulted his career. I don't like or agree with everything he says or does, but the guy is winning as far as the gun industry goes.

He's former MARSOC. He does ham it up for social media enough that it is hard to take him seriously at times.

He takes LARPing to a whole new level. He used to claim he was law enforcement then it came out he was one of the people that bought a badge from the sheriff in NM.

I find it hard to take people seriously who specialize in standing in the open and shooting paper while changing magazines as fast as you can. Never been in a situation where i couldn't, you know, seek cover while reloading. Shooting is the same as driving a manual transmission. Shooting is the thoughtless process of shifting the transmission. Driving is the tactics, situational awareness, and communication required to be successful in small unit tactics. But what the hell do I know...

Low_Sky: I will have to look up the BlackWater Video. Maybe I jumped to conclusions to soon after only seeing this video. But I still have to say, if he is an expert in firearms, then shame on him for not following the number 1 rule. I do not mean to offend anyone. But these are the stupid things the media loves to exploit. Thank you sir!

No kidding. Not sure what drives people to do that but they are legion.

I thought he was disqualified for owning a Tacoma. Any contractor should know those vehicles can’t take a beating and will leave you stranded when you need to push them. Hiluxes have no association with them. That’s a ‘cool kids of So Cal’ vehicle.
