Hm!  I didn't think that was possible the way I set it up.  Of course, you still can't get any of his other sweet stuff without finding a better way to rob him, so...

Hehe, but I have a better way to do it. If you just run in, jump as soon as you can and you can hop over the incoming hail of bullets, and land on his head, leaving you free to take whatever you want!

This method is my method.  Sadly, it's only good for getting one item you can carry.  If you really need to raid the shop, I suggest you bring BULLETS.

Bombs can also do the trick quite safely. You'll need one to blow up the sign (make sure the shoppy isn't on-screen as the bomb detonates). Walk back, activate the bomb, wait for a bit, then toss it at the (off-screen) position of the shopkeeper, and all that precious loot will be yours.

Again, just one bomb.
He'll jump down as soon as the bomb enters the shop, so if you get it right he cant even fire a shot at you.
Practice timing it juuuust right.

If you have a Climbing Glove, theivery is pretty easy. One you leave the shop, immediately grab onto the wall above the entrance. When the Shopkeeper comes out, drop on his head, steal his gun and be winner.

Definitely the bomb method for me, once you have the timing memorized it's the easiest way to rob any shop.

Also Hali I hope you're not planning on patching NighT's method are you?

See, I'd use the bomb method if I didn't have to use a bomb to do it.  Same reason I fight off Giant Spiders instead of blowing them up! Grin

Also Hali I hope you're not planning on patching NighT's method are you?
Nope, this trick's peanuts.  I'll let it slide.

I throw a pot to stun him, steal his gun, shoot him, then raid the shop.
