Sharpshooter and Bandit challenges

Got stuck on these 2 last night.  Not sure if the challenges count as spoilers, so i'm hiding them anyway :P

Spoiler

Sharpshooter 8 - Shoot and unarm 3 enemies without reloading or switching guns.   I'm not sure how to do this one.  Every time i shot someone's pistol nothing would happen, they'd keep hold of it and continue to shoot at me.  A tip i read online said shoot them in the arm and they'll drop it.  That didn't work either, i shot a few in the arm and they died.  Hadn't been shot before, so it wasn't the 2nd shot kill.  Also the arm I shot was drawing their gun from holster, it wasn't in front of their body.  

Using the Scholfield an Cattleman's revolvers as duel weld to do this.  Maybe i need to use the volcanic pistol since it's a little more powerful?  is that why i'm not disarming them shooting the revolver/pistol in their hand?

 

Spoiler

Bandit 3 - Rob 4 cash registers in the same day.  Another one I can't figure out.  I read online to start in the morning to have time to rob the 3 in Valentine then ride to Strawberry to get the 4th.  But i can only get 1.  I hit the gunsmith first, thinking i would go gunsmith, doc, general store, then ride to valentine and hit the store there.   Nope.  I hit the gunsmith, i get reported, all the others stores close down, i can't rob anything else.

Writing this i'm now thinking maybe i should start at midnight but then that won't work either, the other shops would be closed.  

I wear the mask for this, what's the secret?

For this one you need to do one at a time, you can't go on a spree in town, do one, get out and hide, let the Wanted level go all the way down, go back and rob the other store, get out and hide, let the Wanted level go all the way down, go back and rob the next... After you robbed General Store, Doctor, Gunsmith... run to Strawberry and rob the General store there.

The key to the first one is that you can only use Dead Eye on the first of the three. Every time you activate Dead Eye it reloads your gun so you fail.

Spoiler

The best place I found to do this was the stable in Valentine. If you walk through the big double barn doors there is always a cowboy with a pistol chatting. Take either the Lancaster or Litchfield repeater as they have the largest capacity. Walk in, point your gun at him and when he points back use dead eye to shoot the gun out of his hand.

Then immediately turn around, run back through the barn and up the hill as your wanted level will rise. Hide up the hill until the alert is done but DON'T put your gun away or reload.

Once the alert is over walk back to town, back through the double doors and find the same cowboy. Point your gun at him until he aims at you then WITHOUT using Dead Eye shoot the gun out of his hand. Then run away up the hill again.

Repeat one more time and you are done.

Thanks!  the way i read it you needed to do them all in a row and then ride to Strawberry.  I knew had to be something simple i was missing.

Only took about 5 mins the way I did, got it on my first attempt. But good luck!

since I restored my game i have to redo these.  Last night i found that 

Spoiler

To rob the 4 stores you can do it all in Valentine.  I robbed the General store first, then as i was running out the back of the store to get away, a lawman got a lucky headshot in and killed me.  When i came back to life, only 30 minutes or so had passed in game time, and the general store was not locked down from being robbed.  So i hit it again, then did @Bonzai's strategy of running away and coming back for the remaining stores. 

Still working on the sharpshooter one.  I can get 2 but haven't gotten 3 yet.
