When I searched that GT it took me to someone who has 50210 gamer score.

 

Zune, Games for Windows Live and Zune all utilize the Gamer Tag system so if a GT is not available it is possible it is being used on one of those three services and/or it has been permanently banned from XBL (or one of those other services).

[/quote]"Captain Strayer" is an active gamertag (last online 7 hours ago).  http://live.xbox.com/en-AU/MyXbox/Profile?Gamertag=Captain%20Strayer  There is no difference between "Captain Strayer", "captain strayer", "CaptainStrayer" (no spaces), "CaPtAiN StRaYeR".  All of those iterations are the same gamertag.  


The name is taken, pick something else.
