Gun towers are one of the two towers you start with.
One of the easiest ways I have found grind these types of achievements (if its for a tower type you don't use) would be to play level 12 on Practice on Easy (I believe you can play any level at any time you want, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.)
Even on Story Mode, you can essentially beat the level with just the 8 tower spots around the core housing, and maybe one tower blocking the quickest route.
I build 3 cannons along the side closest to the ship, a concussion on the single spot near this, a temporal on the spot across the road, and then at least one tesla among the other 3 spots.
When the level is nearing its end (1-2 waves left) just fill as many spaces as possible with the tower you are working on.
I was able to get at least 50 of the tower I was working on on any particular run (and that was on Story Mode - less resources)

You can do something similar on any level when you finish as long as you remember. This is just for if you are solely trying to grind out this achievement.

As with all other achievements in this game, this achievement will not unlock until you finish the level.

The easiest way to do this is to play the prologue mission(the 1st one). You can only use gun or inferno towers. There are 21 spots to place towers on the map(you can only use 20 as you need to leave one open for a path for the aliens). Just fill up the spots with gun towers, play the mission five times while doing this to get the achievement. Should take about 10 minutes total and also works for the Burn Baby Burn achievement
