From another dude...
I have, and enjoy shooting, a my Glock 42. I got mine back when they were getting a bad reliably rap. I since got the "newer" 03 magazines and the little pistol works perfectly with modest recoil.
The only problem I had with it was my thumb occasionally "dragging" on the slide and impeding the casing ejection. I have pretty big hands and the G42 is a small pistol. As long as I control my grip the little pistol is reliable and quite accurate.
I would have no problem carrying the pistol but I carry a bigger gun that fits me better.

I have a Glock 42 and love the way it shoots. Two of my daughters have shot the G42 and both have had shooter induced malfunctions as stated (limp wrist). Worked with them and the problem was worked out.

I have shot both and carry an original LCP. I carry it because the Glock just barely fits in my right front jeans pocket and the LCP fits perfectly. As for any advice about recoil, capacity, workmanship, quality, reliability, etc., they're all irrelevant. All of these guns, with the exception of the true discount guns, work perfectly fine when maintained properly and will be there when you need them.
Of course, if I were your daughter, I'd carry a Kimber Ultra Carry or a SIG P938. Dad's buying, right?

Females in my family prefer the Glock 42. The LCP has too much recoil in a small package for them tobenjoy. Talon grips also help or a Hogue wrap around grip.

Don't sell the G43 short! Nearly identical to the G42 and in 9mm.
My wife went through j-frames, Walther, Bersa, Colt DS, HK4, and a Colt 1903 in 32, 38 spl, and 380. Liked the Bersa (380) but I bought her a G43 as a Christmas present last year. Liked it so much she had me buy her one with a laser for her birthday, a month later (for her nightstand gun). She keeps her groups to under 3" at 7-10 yards. Three of her friends liked hers so much, they bought them for concealed carry!
Two of them (wife & BFF) had problems with the G26 (double stack) with limp-wristing. I switched the back-straps around and the problem went away==however, both still prefer the G43 over the G26.
We are NOT Glock fans but they are ugly, dependable, ugly, accurate, ugly, plastic, and, did I say they are ugly?.
