Yeah, I kind of thought that making my own eCommerce system would be safer, but then I thought of all the people that work on Magento and wp-ecommerce… I know for a fact that I can’t make something better than 58325927492739482 people do together.

Your logic both ways is solid. You have to assess the threat. Personally I would use a pre-built because you will always have to update your software – better that someone else is doing it than you taking the time to do it yourself.
