All the Ruger P-Series pistols have a firing pin block. This interrupts the firing pins forward travel. During firing it is "removed" as the trigger reaches a point in its rearward travel, allowing the firing pin to interact with the cartridge primer. This type of "safety" prevents accidental discharge by hitting the hammer.

I hope this helps you out...
