Yeah, my Colt Officers has fixed sights as well but my Combat Elite has Adj.
If properly machined into the slide, I don't find them any more snag-able then fixed. Fixed is great if you reload or have a load where POA equals POI. Otherwise, Kentucky windage is required. The theory is at self defense ranges, the difference will not matter.
For those of us who shoot whatever's on sale, different weight, brand etc the adj sights are a blessing. Everyone's eyesight is not 20/20 is another reason or rationale
