I went today and spent $495 on books. On my way home I stopped by my local shop where they are keeping my XD40 SC hostage until my permit is approved and got my first close look at the XDS. Price tag said $569.99 and it made my heart sink to imagine how much more fun I would have with that then a pile of books. Don't get me wrong I am very happy to have another chance at getting my degree, but man does that little .45 look cool. On the bright side the guy at the gun shop told me if I wanted to I could swap the XD40 for the XDS45 and get the full purchase price to transfer so long as I don't officially take posession of the XD40, but I think I'll be happier with the 9+1 and cheaper ammo of the 40.
