What you really want is to cross-train and use Arty-Thrashers. With 3 of them you could Alpha quite a lot of stuff... Doesn't require much cross training either really...
If you're doing it for profit though, you're gonna want someone to be in an industrial (could be on an alt) to grab the loot after you pop them...
Can kill a Retriever with a solo-Thrasher in a 0.6 or 0.5 system no problem :)...
Great advice but he mentioned killing mining ships (don't be tempted!) where you want to do it for profit.
The BEST way to make isk with small ships-kill other small ships. Use Arty Thrashers X 2. Get a scanner and scan frigates, covert ops, bombers and rookie ships. Scan them all before the gate you want to shoot from. Have a ship doing remote sensor boosters on your first thrasher who has a point fitted. Your RSB wont take a sec, or standings hit nor will he recieve any aggro, killrights or negetive effects. Get your scan res over 1,700-use rigs-1 sebo and 2 RSB.
I can provide the RSB if you need-just ask Darius iii (not LLL) in game. Takes a while to find goodies sometimes, but I have killed Nyx BPC and plex and Officer loot in rookies ships many times. You need to be good-you will have like 2 seconds to lock and fire. The first thrasher will lock first so put a point on that one and the RSB if he fails to kill it-your second shooter will finish it off. Put your scanner-who needs 1700 scan res too-few jumps up the pipe-scan them as they jump INTO you. When you find target-alert the shooter team and then shoot him when he jumps INTO your gate-before he warps off. Don't forget to have a scooper! If you need any help hit me up in game.

Also use EFT for the damage ships AND your target where possible.
