    Some are definitely better than others. The one’s where the “pipe” is almost fully exposed... asking for trouble. Some have the pipe more protected as they are enveloped in metal. My buddy’s Taurus poly Judge pipe does not have anything enveloping it, and he is a klutz, so he breaks it often.
    First 2 pics are what I’d call asking for it. 2nd 2 are better protected:

    Like most new things I think they are making improvements on the sights all the time. For some reason the fiber optics just don't seem to work for me, haven't found the right color or maybe I'm just fiber optic challenged.

    I think with minimal care most will hold up just fine. Noting of course Birds previous post the 2nd two would definitely stand up to more mild abuse.

    I have fiber optic sights on a 308 Browning BLR that I use for deer hunting, haven't had any issues with that. Also have fiber on 2 of my 1911s, a 45 and a 10mm. No issues there either. The 10mm is my woods gun. Figure if fiber stands up to that and the deer rifle one should work fine on a EDC gun, since both of those situations see more rough treatment than my EDC does. Just haven't picked one up for my Kahr yet.

    I’ve found that the hot pink one’s are the most visible and catches my eye the quickest, at least for me. Probably the florescent green would be 2nd.
