boxcar vs pinch:which one do you use in public?

i seem to have a easier time with the boxcar. its ironic that most people say that the pinch has more control i cant control  sniffing i either get none in or way back in the throat lol.i do have a question though which is better to use in public box car or pinch? the boxcar is pretty messy. although i do wind that if i cover my whole thumbnail i can barely feel it kin my nose i get surprised sometimes and think that i didnt sniff hard enough and ill find that i go most og it in my nose. the othr nostril is more tricky and generally which do you think is better for menthols? boxcar or pinch? the only thingg that j dont like about the box car ks that it takes longer and gets pretty dirty on one hand what are the benefits for both of them?


  • Boxcar
  • Pinch in public, it is discreet, and I find it easier to control and take while driving!
  • I decide between the two depending on the snuff. I tend to use the boxcar/back of hand method for moister, oiled, coarser snuffs and pinch for dryer and finer ones. It doesn't matter if I'm in public or not.

    I mostly boxcar or if the wind is not blowing hard I'll take it off the back of my hand or home I use a spoon to pour into my boxcars only some times I just a do a few scoops it up me nose ;)
  • I like a spoon for clean constain delivery. Boxcar is my second favorite method. There are certain snuffs I pinch but find I waste more snuff with the pinch. I am not discrete; snuff is a ritual for me and I don't care what anyone thinks. While driving I often see people picking their nose.  I rarely snuff while driving. Snus and pipes are easier and safer methods of nicotine delivery while driving.

    Boxcar, if I have any stubble at all pinching can really get caught in it. But when I'm out it's a bullet. Only problem with bullets is you gotta hit off it like crazy. A .25 gram bucket would be awesome, wonder if that exists on eBay, gonna go check.

    I drilled out my toque bullet to fit .05, maybe .25 would be too big at least .10 should exist though
  • The boxcar feels more nonchalant for me, and less messy than the pinch, but I could see both methods looking about the same to clueless people. I love the pinch for certain snuffs though - I refuse to NOT pinch Lundy Foot.  The dry, medium grind... it just feels so right.

    I mostly scoop into my boxcar or the back of my hand. but sometimes I use the pinch method to get it warm up.Or if I'm wasted/drunk I mainly just scoop directly to my just depends on the day and type of snuff I'm using.
  • Boxcar, pinch, back of the hand, spoon, bullet, I use them all in public.
  • i usually boxcar or back of hand if I'm using a Bernard's or Poschl's tapbox, otherwise I pinch

    Boxcar generally if I'm sitting down (better for toasts which I mainly use), Pinch when in a hurry or standing up, Bullet depends on the type of public I'm in at the time.
  • Public or private, I pinch

    I recently discovered the boxcar it is really working for me for most snuffs. The pinch method is not really working with longer nails and the spoon sometimes get a clump and that will shoot to far up.
  • The boxcar,because it is easy and fast.

    Boxcar gets more snuff in my nose and less on my shirt.
  • Boxcar all around for me. Boxcar is less messy for me.
  • pinch public or private.  I like being able to control how much snuff I release into the airway.
  • Pinch. If I had a top box I would probably boxcar more often
  • Pinch if a tin/tub, boxcar if a tap box or in a vial. I make a lot less mess on my nose with pinching, but a lady at a work event said it looks like I was picking my nose.
  •   I use a bullet usually out in public, for convenience.
  • spoon unless I can't then pinch.

    If you really want to get sneaky, pretend to blow your nose with a tissue but sniff a pinch instead! This has worked for me on airplanes and trains.
