Hey do the npc retailers and convoys drop loot any more. I know they use to, that was the way that harvester mining drones was brought into the game. Was thinking about doing it again?
I have been hearing a lot about freighters dropping loot and by no means will I being doing this but the NPCs yea....I did a little bit of testing today but well it didnít go very well. Damn instapop from sentry guns.

I have read (but not tested) a way of killing them without getting aggro form sentry guns/faction navy/concord

Best way to do it is to snipe the NPC ones

They hit out to 150km, but the easiest thing is just to find out where they came from (hint: overview settings by standing work on NPCs)

The easy way:
lets take amarr for example 3 stations 2x amarr 1x caldari.
See amarr convoy ships in front of a caldari station = kill them.
See caldari convoy ships in front of amarr station = kill them.
No sentry fire from the station guns if you do this.

edit:updated for the easy way
