Notes:

1. The number of firearm dealers registered at the end of the year may not equal the number of new registrations added to the previous end of year total, minus refused registration renewals and cancellations, as it is possible for dealers to be removed from the register if a danger to public safety is identified, etc. In 2009, one firearms dealer within the Strathclyde Police force area had their licence revoked.

2. Population estimates are as at mid-year 2011 from the National Records of Scotland. The mid-year 2012 population estimates are scheduled for publication in summer 2013. (http://www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/statistics/theme/population/estimates/mid-year/index.html)
