It was the welders strike. They were protesting for right to shoot womp rats on their days off. They were supposed to weld a grill over the hole but industrial relations went south. They also wanted better rights for droids.
Darn commies! That still doesn't explain the lack of marksmanship training. These brave men used to be feared throughout the galaxy for their skills. Even the fabled Jedi respected their talents. What happened? Was it more 'non competitive contracts' on the blaster rifles?

Those X-wing fighters were only holographic projections, you know. Do you really think the Rebel Alliance would really entrust a high-performance rocket fighter to a 17-year-old farm boy whose only flying experience was crop-dusting?
That would be about as likely as giving control of an F15 to an alcoholic who had last flown in Vietnam and sending him to attack an enormous floating alien spaceship... hmm, why does that seem familiar?
Anyway, that explosion was nothing like a real space explosion anyway. An expanding ring? It should have been a sphere. Obviously, Tarkin's maintenance men planted explosives all around the trench when they were building the Death Star.

All wrong. The striking welders didn't have a brazier to group around and toast things on when on and warm up armored underwear when ion strike, so they tried to use a previously unseen huge pile of thermite. Or was it thermate?

Yep. Those new blaster scopes were just set too low, so they were perfect at blasting jawas but horrible for hitting anything else.
