I am trying to figure if I am allowed to advertise and Airsoft Shop outside of US. I am currently having an issue with 2 different articles on Google and I don't know which one currently aplies

 

1. https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1348688?hl=en#Weapon-related_content (on this page I see as Acceptable the following:

  • Pages located outside the U.S. that sell Airsoft guns
  • Pages in the U.S. that sell Airsoft guns and have the appropriate disclaimer on the landing page

2. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6014299?hl=en-GB) (on this page i see as not allowed the following:

 Functional devices that appear to discharge a projectile at high velocity, whether for sport, self-defense, or combat

Note: We err on the side of caution and apply this policy to sporting or recreational guns that can cause serious harm if misused, or that appear to be real guns.

Examples: Handguns, rifles, shotguns, hunting guns, functioning antique guns, airsoft guns, paintball guns, bb guns

Any part or component that's necessary to the function of a gun

Examples: Ammunition, ammunition clips, silencers, or ammunition belts  

 

What's the current status for this?

I'm not familiar with the AdSense Policy. The AdWords policy is clear. Weapons or any device which may cause  injury  - is not allowed.
