    Didnt influence my gear, just a way of thinking... making stuff out of next-to-nothing. I remember the one when he showed some homeless girl how to make a fishing lure from a ring pull.
    It also made me cautious of EDCing and all the gear in fear of being called a McGuyver- but there are worse things to be called I guess!

    Well, yes, here we love the show.

    But again, I live in Argentina, where everything is fixed with wire and tape...

    Welcome, T3no. Seems you all are having another round of "excitement" down there; stay safe.

    Whenever someone says something akin to "I hate knives" I begin to wonder what they cut with in the kitchen.

    Anyhow, MacGyver influenced me into carrying a SAK for 25 years as well as having the forethought for what I might need in certain circumstances. Today, we call that preparedness and everyday carry. I'm 31, starting watching MacGyver in probably the second grade, and submit that I've been a prepper and EDC'er since around 1988, lol.
