There are no other XDs calibers yet released.
Your friend's XDs issue is the familiar XDs user-error that is spoken about in XD forums, don't ride the slide and no limp wristing. The XDs is a small, thin gun chambered in .45 ACP with recoil springs that make you want say
Luckily in CA, XDs sell way over MSRP so no loss for your buddy.
