    My 21a Bobcat has no firing pin block. Unless the safety is on it can fire if you drop it with the hammer down. Can you tell I hate safeties?

    I purposely bought a Kel-Tech for it's firing pin block. Not as good a system's as Glock's but at least it can't fire if you drop it.

    So... don't drop it.

    What, exactly, do you think a firing pin block is, if not a safety?

    I think he means manual safeties.

    The big question is: Why do you want to just piss people off when you shoot them???? A 22a??? You can get a plethora of pocket guns that are same size and LIGHTER than that thing and shoot at least 380. .22/25acp? PASS!

    As the old joke says, your best bet is to file off the front sight. It'll help later. LOL

    Very odd.....

    To not like a specific feature of a product, decide to buy it anyways, and then come on here and ***** about it.

    Plenty of pistols don't have firing pin block safeties. Also plenty that do.

    Buy whichever you want to get and stop whining.
