Yes, Hazmatt, they are clones (as revealed in Episode II: The Attack of the Clones). However, if you look at the results of genetic cloning (based on our own medical technology) you'll always have some sort of outliers from the standard deviation (in otherwords a few random clones that end up being much smarter, much dumber, much more coordinated and yes, much less coordinated). Also, they may have ran out of Jango DNA and had to use inferior DNA that has some gene that affects their ability to shoot things very close to them. Also note, I know I could have just answered your question in the thread you started, but starting new threads is fun for everyone. Bosh "Mmmm Jango DNA!"
