Founded in September of 1976 under the name R&M Guns by the late Russ Schutter and his wife Marilyn, the business began in a small house at the corner of Shelby and Center Streets in Florence, Ky. On July 1, 1979 the business was renamed RLC, Inc. dba RLC Guns after the three partners, Russ, Larry, and Charlie. In May 1987 the business was moved to 7269 Turfway Rd. and in April 1992 the name was once again changed to RLC Shooting Supplies. and moved to 7104 Turfway Rd., where it remained until September of 1995. In 1995 the business was moved to 7199 Turfway Rd. Larry, the last remaining original RLC owner sold the business to current owner, Jack Haney, in October 2012. The rebuilding process began and soon the shop was too small for the business to grow. Thus, the most recent move to 6704 Dixie Hwy. was made in August, 2015.
The business specializes in the sale of mostly used guns with a focus on vintage, collectible and out of production guns. There is an inventory of around 400 guns with Colt's, S&W's, Brownings, Lugers, Winchesters, and many others to choose from. It is not uncommon to find military collectibles and hard to locate ammunition, as well as some new guns.
