Notes:

1. The number of registered dealers as at 31 December 2011 has been revised from 347, as reported in the Firearms Certificates Statistics, Scotland, 2011 bulletin, to 346. For further information please see Note 4.2.7.

2. 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.
