Glad you posted this, now I am doing some extra research on the Glock .45 that I have been lusting over for CC.

Take a look at the Springfield XD or the Walther PPS.

I haven't seen a KB in person, but I've seen a weapon after an accident. It was a S&W Revolver with a timing issue.
It's sad, but perfectly good guns get blown up all the time. That said, your range master was probably wrong. In the world of Automatic Pistols, it's VERY rarely the weapon's fault when a KB happens. If a weapon is running like a Rolex and then BANG it's 99.9% of the time going to be another factor. Believe it or not, Automatics are actually more reliable than revolvers as far as weapon function is concerned, ammunition quality and maintenance are the main issues with autos whereas timing is the issue with revolvers. The reason you may hear otherwise is because of rumors or assumptions with no basis. There's a good chance that Skeletor is spot on with what might have happened.

...and there is also pure statistics. All machines have some statistical flaws in manufacture or some other issue. There are a TON of Glocks out there...do the math.

When I saw the title I thought "glock". Mostly because it's a running joke on AR15.com but....
Was it a fotay? The fotays have a rep for going boom. I can't say it's deserved it's there none the less.
