    I got a message today that Phillip Velayo has left Modern Day Sniper. Do you know what he is planning on doing next?
     
    Family time from his FB post. But, nothing on his next job. Wish him well, sure it will be something with what he was doing. But, who knows?

    I think there’s more to the story. In most cases the person leaving would post it up and say I’m leaving at the end of the month or something to that nature, and enjoy the goodbyes with friends and colleagues. Caylen didn’t acknowledge Phil’s departure until a couple of days after. Family time trumps any other reason but is it the real reason. Personally I would have a hard time leaving a very successful business. I guess time will tell.😎

    No, Frank said, it was a break up. Just like he, and Jacob did. Frank just didn't want to go into it. As, it's not his right to say anything. I agree with that. One day it will come out, if it does. Just good luck to both.
     
    Thanks for the reply. Makes sense, if you read between the lines. Caylen seems to be pedaling hard with new content and more interaction on the site, to keep people focused in his direction. Had a class from each of them, both good guys. Agree best to both.😎

    ^^^^This. Let them be. Both Phil and Caylen are among the best instructors in our community, and both men have done a fantastic job of staying above petty gossip over the years.

    I wish nothing but the best of luck for both of them moving forward.

    Whatever you say pirate face, sounds like the facts according to shooting fool…pirate on.😎
     
    I Spoke to both Phil and Caylen, Phil today as a matter of fact,

    he has a plan, and we will continue to support both sides on this, as I have spoken to both.

    Phil is good, it's just different today, he has his daughter to focus on and the schedule of classes can be overwhelming so I get it. We might do a class together at some point, but I believe his schedule will be much lighter than before
     
    How about I settle this and ask him this week... Since I'm literally shooting with him next to me. 😂😂

    "Aye yo Phil, I heard you bounced?! What's the deal? Internet wants to know..."
    Remind him if his asvab was a little higher he could joined the army.

    Wish I was shooting with you guys. Maybe next year.

    Phil's a really nice dude. Enjoyed his instruction and he's really likeable. Def different personality and style from Caylen.

    Dude gave me a rice crispy treat after day 1 of the finale. So he’s cool in my book.

    Damn, if that’s all it takes to buy your love and admiration, you’d probably do some NASTY stuff for a Klondike bar, huh?? ;):ROFLMAO:

    I wish Phil nothing but the best, I’ve always liked his style. Hopefully he stays in the game as I never had the pleasure of shooting with him but would love to someday.
     
    It is a fact that gossip is for women.

    Where does that leave you?

    Nobody gives a shit why someone left somewhere. That's their business and theirs only.
    We all know you are literally an expert on fucking everything including now female habits..... well here is another female habit, turning simple conversation into drama.
    If either of these gentlemen can't handle a "wonder why" as public shooting personalities/business, I'm sure they can jump on and fend for themselves.
    Likely they don't give a toss, luckily however the ever vigilant @308pirate cares👍
     
    I have never met Phil in person, just watched some of his video presentations. He seems like a very professional, knowledgeable, and likeable guy and I like the way he presents himself and his info in his vids. Best of luck to him in the future.

    If he's shifting things a bit so he can spend more time with his daughter then it sounds like he's got his priorities straight. I imagine a travel-heavy schedule all year would be rough on home life if a kid is involved. I still hope to take a class with him in the future.
