Default Fiber optic sights for a defense handgun?

I've been looking to upgrade the sights on my Glock 17 and tossing around the idea of a front fiber optic sight with a plain rear.

I've researched it and found a great set from Warren tactical but I'm worried about the durability of fiber optic sights.

Anyone carry FO sights on their self defense pistol? how they handling?

I have a matched set of colt GCS i carry that i have put low profile neon front and rears on. They are a phospherous night sight that work awesomely. I dont know for sure what brand they are but think they are made by griffin arms. They cost me about $150 for each set.
