The Plothole says:
No, because this game requires the use of the Wiimote's face buttons.

Does this apply to the Wii Perfect Shot Gun by Nyko as well?

Yes. Unfortunately, the game requires one to push and hold B and then press A to fire.

There don't seem to be any gun designs which accommodate this.

There's actually a gun grip that works rather well for this sort of thing. I've seen it under several brand names so I'm guessing it's just a generic thing made by one company and distributed by several others. You can buy them at Dollar General stores (at least, that's where I found mine) for five dollars. I got a pair to use for Ghostbusters: The Video Game and they also work surprisingly well with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Here's an image:

The design allows you to grip the front as you would a sawed-off shotgun, which means most people can comfortably still hit the D-Pad and A Button on the Wii Remote with slight stretching required to hit the 1 and 2 Buttons. If you can find one at a Dollar General or other discount store, give it a try.

well, feel free to use the Zapper, it might make it more difficult though... I would suggest if you want to use a Zapper with an RE game go for Umbrella or Darkside chronicles... one of the rail shooters.
