CZ!!...yes the CZ P-01 is the one to get. Beretta style safety, all metal, great ergonomics and nice size. And affordable. Another I kick myself for selling.

Correction: The P-01 has a frame mounted decocking-only lever that drops the hammer into a half-cock position. Not the same as the Beretta safety. Essentially once decocked it is similar to a SIG with 'first shot long pull'.

There are several pistols out there, that have a manual safety.

CZ75 (depending on the modell. The CZ75 BD has a decocker, instead of normal safety, but on the classic CZ75, the hammer/trigger and slide is locked), Some of the HK service pistols have a safety, etc.
I had my CZ75 changed to SAO, but I don`t carry CCW (not allowed here in germany).
Some of the Sig X Series has a manual safety like on the 1911`s.
Glocks have a manual saftey, aswell as S&S M&P, where the safey is in the trigger (if the little tongue on the Glock trigger isn`t pulled, the trigger will not break the shot, similar on the M&P).

P-210 9mm very pricey

You don`t need a SAO to carry cocked.
You just need the correct type of safety.

If Sig dosn`t gove you, what you are looking for, check out some other manufactorers like the metioned ones.
CZ, Colt/Springfield/LesBear/Peters Stahl, etc (all 1911`s), FN, Ruger, Walther, etc.

there are several brands out there, that have manual safeties on them.

I have never owned a Sig but this caused me to go to their website and I might look into one now.

As far as the 220 is concerned this is listed in the spec section

"SIG SAUER® four-point safety system of decocking lever, patented automatic firing pin safety block, safety intercept notch, and trigger bar disconnector."

No it does not list a thumb safety being available but I would love to get one in my hand and check it out.

All of the standard Sig Sauer duty pistols have those safety features, because required by german police and military.
The Sig P6, which is the service modell of the P225 has been carried for over 20 years by the german police in several states, untill they switched to Walther P99 or the HK P30 at the Bundespolizei.

They are known as pretty much the safest firearms around. Very accurate, durable and easy to maintain and service.
As far as I know, the Navy Seals chose the P226 as standard side arm.

I can only recomend them and taking in consideration, that you have a decocking lever, it is very safe to drop the hammer before holstering.

Go to the next gun club and test one. You will love the feel of it and once you get a hang of it, you will never want any other pistol, besides a CZ75 maybe.

Heres a pic of my 1996 P226 with the E2 grip kit on it.





And my 1986 CZ75 Pre "B", transformed to SAO:

I've heard that can be done. I've thought about it for my P229 as I've felt the E2 grip and liked it. How is it achieved? Because it is smaller I don't now how it's accomplished. What is the cost for the conversion? Can it be done to my SCT version? It has the extended magazine.

I know there is a upgrade kit for the P229 out there.
On my P226 I only had to change the mainspring, mainspring seat, decocking lever and the hammerstrut. It could all be done by myself in about 15mins.

Here is a link to the grip kit fo rthe P229

Thanks kdog, sure is reasonably priced. I'm just not sure how it works with the P229SCT version. Here's a pic.
