The details of the light gun modifications will depend on the light gun.
Here are some general guidelines and ideas:

Adding storage space to your light gun: Fitting things in can be difficult, you might also not wish to put your arduino inside the gun. I wanted to be able to easily remove my arduinos from my duino taggers so I could use them in other projects.
On one of my duino taggers (MK1 gun) I cut holes in the case for the arduino nano pins to go through and mounted a socket on the inside of the gun so the arduino plugged on the outside of the gun. On my Mk2 gun I added an external case for the arduino and tried to make it look like an ammunition clip. The case / ammo clip was made from plastic I got from a cheap ring binder folder and its cover is held in place by a strong magnet.
