I just bought 1 of the lot of 10 being sold by Futuretronics in Burwood Victoria for A$89.95 with A$15-00 postage (free pickup if you can get to Burwood).
Its pretty good value as its effectively a Wii Remote with a nunchuk in a nice package for FPS games on the Wii.
Wii Controller Wireless Buckshot Gun Metallic Red "NEW" (eBay item 270653158033 end time 30-Oct-10 11:16:01 AEDST) : Video Games

I am also thinking of getting this from a seller in Winnepeg Canada.
In house of the dead, Overkill, it would be cool to reload the shotgun using the slide pump to blow away those zombies.
: I won't be buying the Buckshot as even though it looks cool, it has fundamental design flaws like the wii remote buttons being covered over by the housing so you don't have access to the other buttons like +/- and 1 and 2 buttons or the on off switch on the remote.
Also, you need to pull the slide completely back or it won't depress the A and reload. It also is front heavy so it will be tiring to hold and play for the long term.
So its design flaws mean that it will make your game play worse than using a controller which allows you direct access to the A button so you will not suffer misloads, especially if you are getting tired and can't fully pull back the pump slide to full lock position.
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011 (Top Shot Elite Gun pack)
If you are looking for a better designed shotgun peripheral, check out the Activision and its Red Octane subsidiary's new Top Shot Elite which will also be available on the Xbox and Playstation.
Note for the PS3 and XBox 360, They will be giving you a free sensor bar so the Wii like functionality will be available.
Just like the Wii Fit was the must have peripheral in the last few years, it likes like 2010-11 will be the year of the light gun game as both Sony and Microsoft launch their motion controllers.
It has a pump action slide as well as an adjustable shoulder brace.
Its expected by the end of 2010, early 2011 when Cabella Dangerous Hunts 2011 is released.
BigW has a preorder for A$74.95 including the game and controller as a bundle. Its got an Australian ship date of 31 December 2010.
For those who think you won't get much use out of a dedicated Wii Light gun, These are some of the Wii Games I own that would use it.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Reflex Edition
Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns Arcade Hits
House Of the Dead Overkill
Mad Dog McCree Gunslinger Pack
Marines: Modern Urban Combat
Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles
Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles
Red Steel 2
With new titles being released for the Wii all the time.
Like Goldeneye 007 which will be reimagined using the current bond rather than Pierce Brosnan.
It will also offer four player onscreen death match.
