Guymon Gun Club Scraps Plans For Range Near Airport
09/04/2012

Plans for a rifle range adjacent to the Guymon Police Department’s pistol range have been abandoned. The No Man’s Land Rifle and Pistol Association asked the Guymon City Council to terminate its lease on the land at Thursday night’s city council meeting. Club spokesman Billy Eagan said the plans were scrapped due to circumstances beyond the club’s control. “The club respectfully asks the Guymon City Council, the City of Guymon and the No Man’s Land Rifle and Pistol Association agree to terminate the lease of property adjacent to the police pistol range between the two parties,” Eagan said in a statement he read to the Mayor and City Council. The main issue is potential problems from the Federal Aviation Administration due to the range’s proximity to Guymon Municipal Airport and is not without precedent. A gun range in Woodward was forced to close because of its location near the Woodward airport. “The No Man’s Land Rifle and Pistol Association feels that with the potential of the Federal Aviation Administration to pressure the city with the possibility of the loss of funding, this is the best solution,” Eagan said. “The club’s most sincere appreciation goes out to the Guymon City Council, the City of Guymon, the Guymon Airport Board, the Guymon Flood Plain Board and many individual members of those organizations for their support, their encouragement and their hours of involvement in this process.” The council voted 5-0 to terminate the lease. Eagan told the city council that the club is going to look into another site.
