Meet Most Armed Man In America, Has 200 Machine Guns, 80 Military Vehicles & Countless Grenade Launchers
A gun collector, Mel Bernstein, otherwise known as the Dragon Man boasts himself as the most armed man in America. The 71-year-old has more than 200 machine guns, 80 military vehicles and countless grenade launchers to his name.
In fact, Bernstein, originally from Brooklyn, New York, is so obsessed with guns that his bedroom has hundreds of firearms hung up on the wall – a situation that makes him feel ‘comfortable’.
Bernstein has more than 37,000 followers on Facebook, who watch as he chronicles his life on his 260-acre plot of land in El Paso County, Colorado, which he calls Dragon Land.
He earned his nickname from his dragon-inspired bicycle that he fashioned in the 1970s in New York at his brother’s motorcycle shop, affixing a dragon head atop a Harley Davidson.
And it’s earned Bernstein quite the reputation. Hundreds of weekend visitors come to shoot firearms at his range or to visit his military museum.
His complex according to the Colorado Gazette houses a collection worth upwards of $10million, with memorabilia ranging from World War I to Vietnam.
Bernstein’s gun collection alone is worth around $8million.
There’s also an authentically reimagined World War II bunker, which shows off bullet-riddled pots and pans and uniformed mannequins stationed at anti-aircraft bazookas.
