Why a CO-OP?
Being a consumer CO-OP affords us some of the advantages of being a publicly traded company, without the headache and politics (like we need more politics in a gun business). It also allows us to establish a relationship with the people we answer to, you the members. Being a CO-OP also enables us to focus on the long term interest of the company.
You do not have to be a member to shop at Guns For Everyone. CO-OP members pay a $100 lifetime fee to join and receive member benefits, which includes an annual dividend.
How do I receive an Annual Dividend?
If you are a member of the CO-OP, you can earn 10% on eligible net purchases you make from January 1st to December 31st. You will receive a notice in March about your dividend. Any items returned for refund or credit will be deducted from your dividend; if your dividend has already been calculated, then the dividend is deducted from any returns.
Please understand that online purchases are not tracked the same as in-store purchases. Therefore, online purchases cannot be used to accurately estimate your annual dividend.

Does every member get an Annual Dividend?
Only active CO-OP members receive an Annual Dividend notice. To be an active member, you need to make net purchases (purchases minus credits and returns) of at least $50 per year, unless you joined during that calendar year.
When do I get my member dividend?
Annual Dividend notices are sent out in March. For example, the member dividend you earn on purchases made in 2018 will be issued in March 2019 and expire in January 2021. Notices go out in March to all members who earned a member dividend.
How can I spend my Annual Dividend?
You can shop at Guns For Everyone with your Annual Dividend as soon as you receive it in the mail. It’s valid through its listed expiration date. Only the primary member may redeem their dividend.
Can I receive my Annual Dividend in cash?
Yes. Six months after receiving your Annual Dividends notice, you can bring your Annual Dividend notice to any Guns For Everyone store and ask to get your remaining balance in cash. Stores have limited cash on hand, however; a request to redeem an Annual Dividend notice for cash may be handled as a check request at the store’s discretion.
Can I receive my Annual Dividend by check?
Under special circumstances we can issue a check. Because of the accounting costs associated with issuing a check, we are not always able to justify it.
To request a check contact us by phone or email.
When does my Annual Dividend expire?
Your dividend expires on February 1st, just under two years after it has been issued. For example, your 2018 dividend earned on 2017 purchases will expire on February 1st, 2020.
