According to Allegiance, the Empire’s soldiers were entirely clones up until about 9 BBY, at which point they started letting volunteers in (who didn’t necessarily agree with what the Empire was up to once they saw it in action, but by that point it’s too late), but the implication seems to be that they still have a ton of clones around by 0 ABY, too

Stormtroopers intentionally shooting to miss is also a thing that happens, and something the ISB is specifically looking out for, testing recruits to make sure they shoot accurately

DeLisle 1944 Silent Carbine

130 manufactured in 1944 by the Sterling Armament Co. in Dagenham, East London, United Kingdom.
.45ACP subsonic, 7-round standard pistol magazine, bolt action, integral suppressor.

This fascinating weapon was developed by William Godfray de Lisle, British engineer at the Air Ministry, between 1942 and 1944. Its suppressor, an improvement over Hiram Percy Maxim’s silencer, made it inaudible beyond 45m, a quarter of its effective range. It was an invaluable asset for British commandos and a much better alternative to the Welrod pistol that could only fire a few rounds at very short range before needing repair.
