I have an XDs .45 and I absolutely love it, feels better in my hand over the Glock. I will say, however, that the newer gen of XD seems better than my older generations of the XD. I sold my .40 after a few years, I liked it, but it there was something about it that I was not 100% on. I probably need to go shoot a newer Glock, haven't shot one since I was left the PD 7 years ago. The only 1911 I have (wink wink) is my Para with my unit stuff on it. Good shooting pistol, but it is more of a display pistol. I happened to find in a local shop when I went browsing, picked it up used.
