Regarding 1911s without a firing pin block -- many manufacturers have managed to pass California's drop test without using a firing pin block. This is usually done by using a titanium firing pin and a heavier firing pin spring. I have never based my decision on whether to buy a 1911 on whether it had the firing pin block or not. However, none of my favorite 1911s have FP blocks. They also happen to have excellent triggers.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.

no guns = might makes right
