Could you be a little more specific? Do you mean for what reason or do you mean how do you shoot it?
The question can't be answered. National registration is not required.
They were easier to carry.. They were only used as a second firearm and never a primary weapon. It is their last line of defence.
Handguns were used in the first world war extensively because they were easier to wield in trench warfare. Since then they have been primarily issued to troops who for confi…ned space reasons would have trouble carrying a rifle. For example Armored crewmen, transport drivers, clerical personnel. Submachineguns are also commonly issued in many armies for these reasons.
Multiple millions - as many as they want to own...
no not really but it is possible :p . Left handed people use "right handed" guns all the time since there are very few left handed guns. . Most of the issues are related to …magazine release, slide stop, safety, and ejection....but some guns have a left hand oriented grip or stock. . What type of gun are we talking about? What type of shooting sport?
Handguns are used for defense, for hunting, and for target shooting.
The most current year that data is available for is 2005. In that year, US manufacturers produced 1,088,827 handguns. Not quite 3,000 per day.

Laws vary from place to place, but in many places, handguns that meet minimum energy levels CAN legally be used for hunting. There are handguns that were specifically made for… hunting, such as the .454 Casul, .460 Ruger, .500 S&W- as well as the single shot pistols that use rifle caliber ammo. I deer hunt with a .357 magnum revolver with a 10 inch barrel, and it is more than adequate for Eastern Whitetail deer.
Leon Czolgosz used a .32 caliber Iver Johnson revolver to shoot McKinley.

500 rifles and pistols were produced, a rare find. I'm looking for a set so if you know someone who is looking to sell let me know.
Different guns for different purposes.
Your question asks for an opinion. My opinion is that they should. When private possession of firearms goes up, crime decreases.
A 40mm handgun would fire a bullet the size of a golf ball. No such critter. There IS a .40 caliber handgun (about 10mm). There are dozens of larger caliber handguns than .40 …caliber. They include the .41, .44. .45, .455. .460, .475, .500- and several others.
