Target Practice

The funny thing is, in the first Star Wars movie when Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi find the dead Jawas and their disabled sand crawler, Luke at first assumes that it was the Sand People who were responsible for the attack.  Obi-Wan, however, corrects him, saying "Only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise..." as he is pointing out the accuracy of their blaster fire on the sand crawler.

So which is it?  More accurate than Annie Oakley, or so inept they couldn't hit the side of a Death Star from the inside?

They held their hands so low that every shot was bound to miss.
And they still had blasts in lieu, cos George made it that way.
It's true, back her way Leia was known as a ace shot, but that didn't carry over, ofisherly.
I only saw the first movie, when it premiered in Wellington, N.Z. sometime when I was much, much younger.
