Can't help you as to where to buy, as I don't live in the USA, but in terms of what to buy - based on personal experience - get a good commercial quality brass regulator from a reputable company like Watts. I imagine they will be readily available from plumbing and DIY stores, and if not sure to be available on the internet.
A quick browse came up with this, among many others.

Depending on state laws, your home might be required to have one installed. I know we are required to have one where the water main enters the home. It is kind of silly for us as we are very high up on a hill and we suffer from LOW water pressure but by building code, we are required to have the regulator there anyway!
I echo the statement to get a quality one, you will not do yourself any favors by cheeping out on one. Watts make a good one and for us at least, you can buy them at a home center.

Well, ordered one from Chris'coffee 3/8 fittings. Will put on the output of my RO unit. I was informed that my pump has shipped. So maybe I will be able to get some practice pulling shots before the week is up:)
