Yes. That sir is called the Half Cock Notch. That is a safety feature. It keeps the hammer from falling if you start to pull the trigger DA, and decide that you don't want to shoot, that is where it stops to keep it from firing.
Also that is the point where it stops if you decock the weapon.
You can fire the pistol from that position in DA mode, or cock it back and run it SA.
