These two services, at first blush, seem to have little reason to be compared to each other. Identity Guard is one of the most famous identity theft protection services out there, and is well known to be one of the best on the market. Identity Force, by contrast, is significantly lesser known, and puts on a pretty unassuming front. It might appear that it can’t possibly compare…but you might be pleasantly surprised if you take…

Identity Guard and IDShield are two services that aren’t too different on the surface, which makes them perfect for comparisons. They share pretty much the same philosophy of what an identity theft protection service should be: all business, with a complete focus on pure performance. The devil is in the details though, and the more important parts of the comparison are going to come from the drastic ways these services differ from each other rather…

Identity Guard and LifeLock represent the two best all-around identity theft protection services on the market. They compare well to everything else out there, simply offering more than the average contender. This, of course, begs the question: how do these services stack up next to each other? Overall, they compare very well, as you might expect from two top tier services out there. Ultimately, I think Identity Guard takes the edge on this one, offering…

When it comes to identity theft protection, cost effectiveness is one of the more important factors people look for, and a big part of what makes a service cost effective is how they handle covering multiple people. Some low tier services require you to buy a whole separate service to cover a second adult, much less children, while others provide options to cover both for a fraction of the price of paying for multiple accounts.…

When it comes to identity theft, there are a few huge names sitting at the top of the heap. Identity Guard is one of those, being possibly the first business that comes to mind when someone thinks of identity theft protection. This is likely in part due to its longevity. Identity Guard has been around for many years, and was one of the first companies to get into the identity theft protection game. As a…

The full-size 1911 has served admirably as the official sidearm of the United States armed forces, and it continues to see action among some specialized units. However, the pistol is the biggest hit with private citizens, both as a competitive shooting piece and a self-defense firearm. While the 1911 is still beloved by shooters for that purpose, the underlying principle of concealed carry is discretion, and a full-size combat handgun is not the most discreet…

Glock is more than just a brand; it is a household name. Trusted by law enforcement agencies, civilian shooters, and military forces worldwide, Glock products are synonymous with simplicity and reliability. After all, who hasn’t heard the words, “Just get a Glock” before? It’s an undeniable fact: Glocks work. With many models for all applications, including duty use, competition shooting, personal and home defense, concealed carrying, and even hunting, there is a Glock pistol for…

The 9mm Luger, 9×19mm Parabellum, is the most popular centerfire semi-automatic pistol and submachine gun cartridge globally. Designed by Georg Luger in 1902, the 9mm is light-recoiling, sufficiently powerful for most defensive purposes, and best utilized in high-capacity, compact firearms. Although the 9mm was once regarded as inadequate for serious hunting and self-defense, ammunition technology has advanced considerably in the last few decades. Because of its widespread popularity, the number of available 9mm pistols is…

Designed by a manufacturer of polymer curtain rods to replace the Austrian Army’s WWII-era Walther P38, the Glock is not the world’s first polymer-framed pistol, but it is the first to see widespread commercial success. Formally adopted as the P80 (Pistole 80) in 1982, the Glock is a semi-automatic, locked-breech, striker-fired handgun operated by a modified Browning short-recoil system. One of the most enduring handgun designs of the 1980s, the Glock series has spawned several…

Introduced in the early 1980s, the first-generation Glock 17 was a 9mm pistol designed to meet or exceed all the Austrian Army requirements. Simplicity, durability, and reliability; are words that best define what Glock is all about. Since then, Glock has designed many new products. By far, the most common chambering across all Glock models is the classic 9x19mm. It’s no surprise; the original Glock is a 9mm, and with over 35 years of experience…
