If you don't feel like wasting all your ammo, killing someone, then reloading your last checkpoint, just wait until you get the shotgun, and on one of your many trips into the different areas of the city, find a civilian who won't fight back and melee them. Usually they don't have anything to do with the main storyline, and you won't run into trouble walking up to them for the kill.

The problem I had with this achievement was that the game never once told me how to melee. It accomplishes this feature in a completely counterintuitive fashion, considering there is an unarmed selection on the D-Pad which does nothing.

To melee with any akimbo weapon (pistols, SMGs) you must run one of them out of ammunition; this also works with the Darkness Guns later in the game if you temporarily use up enough darkness power to not be able to fire the one in your left hand. To melee with any two-handed weapon (shotgun, assault rifle), hit cn_LT regardless of ammunition stock.

This can be your first achievement in the game. After you take the dying fat man's pistols, you'll have exactly two pistols and one clip for each in your inventory. Simply empty the ammunition on one, then pistol whip one of the guys past the elevator at the beginning of the game.
