The grip safety and the thumb safety were requirements made by the U.S. Army under the elements they wanted to contract for in a pistol. John Browning did not have either in his original design. The half cock notch was the logical safety. It is just as safe to carry on the half cock notch as cocked and locked, and certainly safer than hammer down on a loaded chamber.
