MacGyver. The show follows secret agent Angus MacGyver, played by Richard Dean Anderson, who works as a troubleshooter for the fictional Phoenix Foundation in Los Angeles and as an agent for a fictional United States government agency, the Department of External Services (DXS). Educated as a scientist, MacGyver served as a Bomb Team Technician/EOD during the Vietnam War ("Countdown"). Resourceful and possessed of an encyclopedic knowledge of the physical sciences, he solves complex problems with everyday materials he finds at hand, along with his ever-present duct tape and Swiss Army knife.
He prefers non-violent resolutions and prefers not to handle a gun, but will if necessary. MacGyver has used guns in the series, including an AK47 (actually a mocked up Valmet M71S), a Smith and Wesson .357 (used with the cylinder removed as a wrench), and a Berreta 92f (while amnesiac thus forgetting his aversion to guns).
