Default sub for snatch

I understand that there is no true sub for the snatch but i still remain uncomfortable with the motion. What could be a good stand in until i can get some quality coaching? Im thinking in terms of the PM mass gain type workouts.

Are you comfortable with just doing snatch pulls?

I'd just do that then. It may create some bad habits you'll have to correct later, but it shouldn't be much of a problem.
