* In the infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986_FBI_Miami_shootout Miami-Dade]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Hollywood_shootout North Hollywood]] shootouts ''thousands'' of shots were fired by both the perps and officers/agents,[[note]]In both cases both sides were trained shooters, Plant and Matix being the ex-soldiers, and Phillips/Mătăsăreanu a seasoned weekend warriors.[[/note]] with only about dozens connecting in both cases, neatly fitting in the common ~1% hit rate of the modern gun battles. North Hollywood shootout also averts ArmorIsUseless, as both robbers wore body armor and shrugged off several otherwise incapacitating hits.

And for his part, ex-Stormtrooper Finn is actually a pretty good shot, though he was explicitly mention as having placed very highly in training, and it might just be a RedemptionPromotion.

** In the review to Film/ANewHope, during the scene where Luke's home is found in ruins [[FrameUp and made to look like the Sand People did it]], Obi-Wan notes that the blast markings on the Sandcrawler are too accurate for them and that only Stormtroopers are that precise.
