That would be freaking awesome!
I imagine it could have several 'missions', beginning with basic firearms handling and safety, target shooting, shooting trap, game, as well as home defense scenarios. Advancing the player only once the principles can be demonstrated.

Actually, some people who feel comfortable playing a Wii, but not comfortable with guns and live ammunition could be acclimatated to and learn about firearms in a safe environment like their living room would be a good beachhead to work on. Would you say the same of the Eddie the Eagle program? Or of Appleseed? All it is - is a different medium.
