The carry kit has a third magazine, a Blade Tech holster and Blade Tech double mag pouch. S&W was also offering two free magazines and a free range bag with the purchase of an M&P, so if you got the carry kit you ended up with 5 magazines. The free magazine promotion ended July 15. Not sure about the free range bag promotion.
For the free magazines and range bag you had to fill out coupons and send them in with a copy of your sales receipt. I bought my M&P in mid-June and received the range bag three weeks later. Still waiting for the two magazines, but I bought the carry kit so I have three mags, which is all I need right now.
Well, I have to wait till next month, till I turn 21, to buy so, I guess I will try to get the carry kit. when the time comes that will give me 3 mags, and I might buy a few but the mags are pretty pricey.
From what I found the extra stuff in carry kit goes like this - $41.00 for one more magazine, $25.00 for holster, $21.00 for magazine pouch if you buy them Separately. I got the whole package for 489.00 + tax.
I paid $469 for the carry kit. Considering the value of the extra mag, holster and mag pouch, I figure that I got the gun for $380. When you add in the free range bag ($40+) and two more mags ($35 to $40 each), that brings the net price for the gun down to $260, more or less. Can't complain about that, especially since it quickly became my favorite pistol to shoot.
