Left Handed Friendly Pistols

There are very few truly left handed pistols out there, as 99.99% of all pistols will eject the round to the right.  To qualify as a left handed friendly pistol, you must be able to operate one left handed as you can right handed.  So what are the attributes? First off, one must be able to release the mag with their left thumb. No finger drops (sorry 1911). Secondly, left handed slide stop is nice, but a racking the slide with the right hand is acceptable. Finally, if there is a thumb safety, you must be able to manipulate it with your left thumb.
