Where could I get some reasonably priced pitons and a hammer?

OK, I'll say it.

You have no business hammering pitons at this early stage in your climbing career.

From the info you've posted, you're REALLY REALLY new to climbing. Leave the weapons of rock destruction to people with more experience, better judgement, and more extensive connection with the areas' climbing history, ethics and access principles.

Just learn how to climb for now, k?
