If you still have the little stock grips on the 642, I wouldn't blame her for not liking it. Try some bigger rubber ones, maybe Pachmayrs. There's also nothing wrong with using .38 Special wadcutter target loads. They will reduce felt recoil and still be effective.
I've cleaned this Sig down to the nitty gritty couple of times, but i'll do it again.

Yeah, its stone stock, but she hates it. We did run the .38+p's through it, but its in her head now. She needs something less then that.
