I've had pretty good luck with the durability of duracoat.
As far as the price goes, it's almost $40 to buy the stuff you need, so if they provided the paint $50's not a bad deal.
Granted, when you buy it yourself you can paint like 2-3 long guns (I've never used it on a pistol) but it doesn't keep well once mixed, so unless you have a bunch of stuff you want the same color, you're not going to save much by doing it yourself.
You can also retouch it really easily, so I wouldn't bother babying the gun. Me and a few friends go in together every few years to buy a can and coat our hunting guns. That way, we don't have to worry about them rusting if we don't get the rain out of every crevice.
