    to get rid of the zero array? you mean the element? just do not use it. start with 1 instead.

    {keyboard broke, no w got a vv instead?)

    first think of what information you need for a store to keep track of the information. item types , serial number, whole sale cost, retail cost. tax percentage, amount in stock, then
    for the customer what information do you need to keep track of?

    create structs to reflect the same then go from there.

    The best way to get rid of the array is to use a vector, also you better use strings.

    #include <vector>
    #include <string>
    vector<string> weapons = 
       "banana bomb","grenade","bazooka","uzi","shotgun","air strike" 
    I also would recommend to create a struct or class for the weapons like so:

    struct Weapon
      string name;
      double price;
      // and maybe power, weight and some other infos
    Then you can create a store as a vector<Weapon> or maybe create a class store;
