    Transformers are ambidextrous, but being right-handed I tend to put weapons in their right hands.
    I occasionally put it in their left hands for shelf-positioning purposes, or when the figure has a particular problem (like Binaltech Jazz, whose right hand is loose and won't hold the weight of the weapon)
    When a figure has a gun and a melee weapon, the melee goes on the right hand, and the gun on the left.

    Mine are right handed. If someone has a gun and a sword then it's right hand sword, left hand gun.

    I don't really show preference to one or the other. Mostly I just change it up by mold, for example: Prowl and Smokescreen are wielding right-handed, Bluestreak left. Sideswipe right, Sunstreaker left. Ratchet right, Ironhide left. And so on.

    As I like to pose my TFs a lot, I choose the hand based on which side is more forward and whether the TF is aggressive or passive. For example, WFC Prime leads with his gun while WFC Bee keeps an open hand forward.

    My tfs are mixies. They change the hand depending on their place in the display case and for space issues (if the weapon obstructs the position of another tf in the case, it changes the hand).

    Leftie or rightie with me has always depended on the Transformers Box/Card art. There are not that many left-handers but they do exist.

    Gun in right hand, other weapon (e.g. sword) in left hand. If any TF of mine has two guns, they dual wield. If they have two guns AND two other weapons, I tend to give them one gun and one of the other weapons, and stow the rest.
