Prior to the Black Mesa Incident he had (partly) followed in his father's footsteps. Dave Harley worked as an illegal gunsmith in the United States. Over time the popularity of his work rose and he was getting requests to either fix a gun, make it better or just make one from all over the country. At the brink of his ware going worldwide, just having made contacts as such he was found out. Detained by police and judged guilty of his work in court, he served in jail.

After being released Dave refused to give up his profession, although with a few problems, several contacts had left him. Customers had done so as well. His economical situation being on the way down he soon realized he had to take action in order to make it. He took the risk and advertised his work and gained some customers again, not that this would matter.

The Combine invasion and the Seven Hour War, Dave immedeately shut down shop and took refuge in the nature, what now would be refered to as the outlands. Bringing only supplies he deemed necessary, he had brought food and drinks, a gun, some ammunition and what he thought would be the most important, a radio.

Having settled in the outlands he established radio contact with several of his worldwide suppliers who had survived the invasion themselves. They worked for a couple of years to establish a new, safe route for the supplies to be shipped via. Then he began with his work again, of course not having much more than two-three customers. He decided he needed a group of people to supply rather than individuals. He aimed for the biggest, the best, the Lambda.

Then the antlion season, a dangerous time and you'd usually flee the outlands. And Dave did, he left for City 8. There he established a base on a rooftop, where he finally made contact with the Lambda. The "partnership" was - however - short lived, increased Combine activity forced him into a train of thought eventually leaving him with the decision he had to move out of the city. He wanted a fresh start, fresh air and a fresh landscape. He wanted the coast.
