Meet the Man who has enough weapons to start a civil war

If Mel Bernstein were an African, he would have been a 'war lord'.

Mel Bernstein is a 71-year man, originally from New York. He prefers to go by his nickname the Dragon Man, which was inspired by Harley Davidson.

His museum collection is estimated to be worth above $10 million, while his gun collection alone is estimated at $8 million.

This armoury is stored in different rooms, which are named after countries that have gone to war with the United States. These wars span between World War I and Afghanistan. The size of the room is 65,000 square feet.

Mel also has a reimagined World War II bunker with its complete bullet-riddled pots and pans. This machine of war has its uniformed mannequins stationed at anti-aircraft bazookas.

Among other collections in his museum include machine guns, military vehicles, landmines, military swords, grenades and countless other unused war memorabilia. These are all housed in 86 show cabinets and a tour of the museum would take 3-4 hours to be able to see everything.

Amazingly, everything works and nothing is fake. Since it’s a private collection and not a government museum everything can work.

These firearms make him feel so comfortable that his bedroom isn’t spared from being decorated with hundreds of guns hung up on the walls. This is to portray his obsession with weaponry.

Mel has earned himself a reputation with a whopping 37,000 followers on Facebook. More so, this place is visited by hundreds of weekend visitors who come to shoot firearms at his range or to visit his military museum.
