However, the S&W M&P9C (S&W's website is down, sorry for lack of link) is available with a thumb safety, there's also compact 1911s (including the not so 1911ish Para LDAs), the older S&W metal framed autos.
The Ruger SR9C/40C and LC9 have thumb safeties. As for the SR9/40 the guns seem a little rough and the safety is too small, they made it just the right size for it to be out of the way for those that don't want to use it, which means it's too small for those that do want to use it. The same can be said of the LC9.
There's also the Beretta CX4 Storm Compact
If you choose a 1911, that will require a whole other thread of it's own as the options available are almost limitless.
