In Star Wars: A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Alec Guinness) tells Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) that Stormtroopers are really good shots. "These blast-points... only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise," he says. While it's possible that Obi-Wan was really referring to the planning the Stormtroopers put into their attack on the Jawas and not their marksmanship, others haven't seen it that way. Throughout the original trilogy, Imperial Stormtroopers don't hit much of anything.
This has inspired countless hilarious memes about how Stormtroopers can't hit their targets. The First Order Stormtroopers in Star Wars: The Force Awakens appeared to be better at it, but that hasn't done much to rescue their reputation. After all, they were beat by the short Ewoks in Return of the Jedi. It's tough to come back from that.
