I like the Ventcore better with the padding. Full disclosure I haven't tried the Revolution, but the padding on the Ventcore, is what separates it from other hybrids, for me. I would go with the mini and save the room.

I have one for my Wife's G43, and a Springfield I used to carry. They don't make it for the Shield with the TLR6. Part of their selling points is very little extra Kydex...they trim it close to the Firearm...so nothing extra to modify.

That's when I switched to the Alien Gear...much wider availability and one of their selling points is the ability, to swap the outer shells...which means lots of room for modifying.

I bought the Springfield on Ebay, and the G43 through the Stealth Gear site.

I just received my stealth gear owb holster, and absolutely love it with the 9c, but a word of warning for anyone considering buying a stealth gear holster, the FDE color they show on the website is nowhere close to the color you actually receive. I sent them an email telling them that I got the wrong color, sent them a picture, and they said nope, you got the right one.....I argued, but soon realized I was wrong.....Sure don't look like the picture, and doesn't go all that great with my FDE M&P 9C....

I have a mini for my 9C , it carries great, I may get one for my shield (I currently have the full size Onyx) but, the Onyx works well too so I'm on the fence about dropping another $100 for holster that doesn't really need upgrading. The Mini IMO is the design I wish they started with.
