On the M1911 (and all its cousins), Browning Hi-Power, Ruger MkI/II the safetly also locks the slide.

I don't own and haven't used any of those, so I defer to you on those models.

As far as the Glock and the H&K, well, there are "safeties" in the firearm - the Glock's is on the trigger, and the H&K is on the front of the grip. I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word "safety" is. ;-)

See that little lever? Flip it up over the red dot and try and pull back the slide.
