Just to go one step forward, how about "couples" training. The guys can stand back and watch you train their partners and pretend they already know that stuff, at the same time being grateful for a nonthreatening way to learn.
Another consideration, double ear protection. My wife did not like shooting initially because of the noise. It wasn't until she used both ear plugs and headphones that she could be on the range next to those folks with higher powered weapons and be comfortable.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
