I live in the States, if that's important. I'm just curious, and I've wondered for a long time now, if you can use actual names of products or brands in your story. For instance, instead of saying your character drinks "soda" could you say she drinks Coke or Pepsi? Or Perhaps instead of driving a sedan, he drives a Chevy Malibu. And perhaps the most important (for a lot of people), instead of a "shotgun," she uses a Benelli, or instead of a pistol, he might use a Glock. Anyone have any insight on this? All of the Google searches I've done have turned some conflicting information.
