Yes... what gun? I was looking at those for my G43 and didn't know if I should consider the standard, or the mini.

For guns like the Shield, G26, G27, G42, G43, XDs, Sig P238, P938, and the list goes on, the holster doesn't need to be or should you really want it to be any larger than the gun itself.

If your happy cool, but there are so many better ways to carry, that will fit virtually all the clothes you already own, are easy to put on, take off, and are comfortable as well as having the most important attribute, being effective in a fight.

Stealthgear has unquestioned quality, just a little more bulk than you really need for the type of gun.

Personal and Professional opinion, but just my opinion.

Much more comfortable than the ones before it

Don't really feel it, works for me

Ultimately that is all that matters.

So how do you address the spare mag(s) issue?

I use a StealthGear Mini for an HK P2000 (compact). It's extremely comfortable and easy to get on/off. I can drive all day wearing the holster and gun. I also have a "Standard", formerly called an Onyx. It's definitely larger than you need for a compact handgun, but is very comfortable. It's a bit hard to get on/off due to wrapping further around behind the hip. I'd give the Mini more points for driving comfort, but both work.

I don't know about others' experience, but my holster/gun combination definitely let's me know where it wants to be warn. I may want to carry at 3:00, but if I try that position my zipper winds up at 1:30. 4:00 is very comfortable and very easy to conceal the HK in that location.

I just ordered a mini for the G43, stay tuned.

I'd love to get down and see you in Mission Viejo Grantar, I think it would be an eye-opener and a big help in avoiding the plastic storage tub full of holsters. Being in Victorville, it's just quite a round trip through some world class traffic.

Just received the Stealthgear Mini for the G43, wow what a difference in comfort over the single clip Safariland I was using.

Man made material of some sort, but very comfortable so far. I've been wearing this one all day, as I've heard many times about a good holster I forget I'm wearing it. It draws very naturally but the re-holster takes some familiarization for sure. I'm not carrying with one in the pipe yet.

I just got a Stealth Gear (mini) for my G19, it feels good and I'll report after a couple days carrying with it.

I know you originally bought a Standard, do you have both? I strongly considered the standard for the G19 but I liked the mini enough with the G43 I thought I'd give it a go.

By the way folks, these are tuckable and I just wore my G19 with a tucked t-shirt into that big warehouse that doesn't like guns apparently. Carrie told me it was invisible except if I bent forward then the could see it a little but unless someone is really looking for it they aren't going to see anything.

This thing is good... I'm carrying the G19 no problem and it's very comfortable in every position. I did adjust the ride height to sit lower, but the draw is very nice.



I'm seriously considering trying one for my 1911.
