I was looking at the Baby Eagle but the MR dealers here rarely carry them and as soon as they get them they are gone so I am having to look for something else. I was looking at the SD40 today on the Smith & Wesson site but saw no mention of whether or not it had an external safety. Does it have one? My other choice as of right now my other choice would be the Ruger SR45 which does have a safety. A safety is a requirement of mine on any gun I own. Suggestions on other pistols are welcome. P.S. Please do not bring the argument that no safety is needed as my mind is made up and I don't want to hear it.
