Dreamcast light gun questions.

My old Dreamcast is currently enjoying a bit of a renaissance, since
I've hooked it up via VGA box to a 19" monitor. I've been interested in
picking up the two DC light gun games (Confidential Mission and
House of The Dead
) and a gun to go with 'em, but before I do, I've
got a couple questions:

First, and foremost, is the light gun compatible with a computer
monitor… or is it just designed to work with a TV?

Second, would anyone care to recommend a good third-party DC gun? (I
know of at least three that are available.)

I'd love some opinions.

It should work, but you will probably have to crank the brightness and/or contrast up quite a bit to get it to do so reliably.

You can use a light gun with Confidential Mission. It locks out the official Japanese Sega light gun though. The US released guns (Mad Catz and Interact) work fine.
