Nail gun for 1/8 luan

I have a 18g Brad nailer. Will it be too much for 1/8 luan? It will be glued to the base soft wood. Or should I get a 18g narrow crown stapler? Or T50 staples with an electric stapler? Thank you.

1/8" or 1/4"?
IMO anything only 1/8" thick is best off glued with maybe a few brads or staples to hold it in place while the adhesive dries.

You might want to think about using contact cement.

Thank you. I will save money on tools and rely on the glue.
