The problem with this achievement is that you run out of enemies pretty fast, so if you kill enemies yourself a couple of times because they are attacking you, you don't have enough of them left to score an assist on.

I've noticed that you can get assists on your friend's and your own HORSE. Just join a public free roam, enter a hideout - preferably Fort Mercer b/c your enemies are all inside the Fort and you can get this one on the outside without them getting in your way (you might have to take out the ones on top of the entrance).
Now all you've gotta do is whistle your horse in turns with your friend, shoot the horse in the leg and have your friend shoot it in the head afterward. The killer has to kill with one shot, otherwise the achiever won't get the assist.
You get assists for shooting both your friend's and your own horse.
This way, you can "create" your own enemies, so you can't run out of people to shoot.

Hope this helps...
