GUN crime in Glasgow has plummeted in the last ten years to just a couple of dozen incidents in a year.
Firearm offences in the city has fallen from 254 in 2006/07 to just 26 last year 2015/16, a drop of 90%
There has been a similar huge drop across Scotland, but the city which a decade ago had by far the highest number, has seen the most dramatic change.
It is no longer the highest in Scotland, with Edinburgh and Fife now topping the gun crime table.
When air guns are removed from the figures, the city has seen a similar drop from 76 offences to 10 a fall of 86%
Again the figure is lower than Edinburgh and Fife and is equal to much smaller council areas like Aberdeen and Falkirk.
In Scotland there were 332 gun crime incidents and 151 when air weapons are excluded, in the last year.
The most common use was in an offence of common assault (32) and breach of the peace and threatening behaviour (30).
While the rate of gun crime has fallen police have previously estimated there are more than a quarter of a million firearms in Scotland.
The vast majority are legally held shotguns or other weapons but tens of thousands of illegal guns are believed to be held.
Justice Secretary Michael Matheson said: “Today’s figures show excellent progress is being made to tackle the scourge of gun crime in Scotland. I am particularly pleased that the number of people killed or injured by firearms continues to fall.
