Make sure you practice with the CW9. While the trigger pull is smooth, it feels slightly longer than the G19 to me. That also may be my perception based on the fact that the Glock trigger reset occurs further back than the Kahrs, which have to be almost to the point where your finger is off the trigger before reset occurs.

For those of us who are a bit portly, if both the main and BUG are IWB holstered, drawing both would cause one pants to fall to the floor.
I carry mine IWB at 3:30 and a spare mag in the week hand front pocket when going into bad neighborhoods. Rest of time, no BUG or spare mags. 7 in the gun should be a good enough stopper.
Generally ankle carry for me. The BUG isn't always just a BU to a primary, but a gun that is easier to get to in some positions. When seated in the car or at a restaurant booth, the 642 in an ankle rig might be easier to get to than my primary.
Although I can certainly appreciate the benefits of a back-up gun (BUG) I’ve never carried one since I left the Sheriff’s Office in the 70's. As a civilian with a conceal-carry permit with a reliable revolver, I’m already way ahead of most citizens and that seems to work for me.
Still, I just recently addressed the need to carry a reload and I am considering a 400-dollar Taser. I know a couple of people who were forced to banish their gun in order to defuse an imminent threat. In each case, the use of deadly force would have arguably been justified. Fortunately, the bad guys in each case, backed down. So, if a gun is all you have, then so be it. However, if you have a more suitable counter-measure, I would think a taser would be more useful and require less paperwork.

I have a very excellent Galco ankle glove that wears well for my 5 shooter. If I were to pick for everyday BUG thats my choice. And with practice you can present arms pretty fast. If you are defending from the ground you would be surprised how fast, again practice lot's of it. And I need more.
I carry a Glock 23 as primary and a Glock 27 as a BUG. I use Little Bear Custom Holster custom Rig.
