Help! Taser? TASER?

    I'm at work and my AP book is no help, as it's not in there.

    Is it 'taser' or 'TASER'?

    I'm doing a story on a law enforcement agency purchasing them and the material I have so far is TASER but that doesn't 'look' right.

    Anyone have any ideas? (No one here does.)

    Thank you!

    Taser, but then only if that's the actual brand the cops are buying.

    I've never seen it as anything other than taser.

    Taser is the actual brand being purchased.

    Then Taser it is. Proper noun. I'm sure the TASER in the promotional material is just a typographic rendering, a la "adidas."

    It's Taser.

    I also believe you can't use it as a verb (i.e. tased).

    Thanks everyone. :)

    Today, I finish my interviews -- wish me luck, I'm fearing one interviewee may not be completely cooperative.
