Because you dont know that much about security ??? ( a theoretical "you" !!)

If you know what you need, and what can you do, you do it by yourself, and 
only rely on your capacities.

If you need protection, or at least some kind of monitoring activity, but dont 
know much about network security, then you go an buy a solution

Thats what I think

BTW, all the network admins I know use firewall for protection, but dont now 
much aside from that, most of the time use some kind of precoded rules, and 
keep it like that forever.
