Reluctant new shooter

I took a new shooter to the range Sunday, and nobody got hurt. This is pretty much despite her efforts... I've never had such a hard time getting someone to understand the concept of keeping a gun--A loaded gun even--Pointed in a safe direction. I told her "watch your muzzle" at least 6 different times in an hour or so, and she wasn't the only one shooting.

I won't be so patient next time (with someone else--I don't foresee a next time with her)-I'll tell whoever I take about this trip, and that if similar happens, I'll pack up and go right away. Once or twice from a new shooter I can understand and accept, since I was able to stop her before she pointed at someone. Much more than that is either unwillingness or inability to learn.
