Yep, paid $469.00 for it and it had the optional thumb safety on it, kinda like that feature on it for the fact that you have to physically push it off before it will fire, and if you are going to use it, you already havt the grip safety depressed and when you draw, get in the habit of as you draw, to release the thumb safety,then all you need to do is squeeze the trigger.
I kinda think of the thumb safety as a fail safe device.
