I bought a 177 pcp recently and I love it.

The 177 shoots very flat ( less drop).

More pellets are in each  tin.

The 177 uses less air. ( huge advantage) / Less recoil…

The report / noise is much less..

The 177 pellets are  little bit harder to load when you have "fat fingers." 

The 177 has plenty of energy to kill birds. It also does not generally frighten others birds when the pellet impacts your target. ( that was the main reason I bought the 177)

I do prefer 22 cal for squirrels past 35-40 yrds.. ( if I don't hit a vital/s)

Also, the 22 will buck the wind better.. But its fun to figure the wind and hold for it..

Good luck!!!
