Gun, Short, or Longboard

Sure, it will ride waves. But you won't get anywhere near the potential of the board in anything under head high.
plus, for a beginner, it would be easier to ride a longboard. But, depending on the shape of the gun, it might be easier to ride then a shortboard for a beginner.
Unless the wave is really powerfull a gun will be really difficult to ride. They are so narrow with too much rocker for smaller mushy waves.
