Picking Up Objects

Hello. I am quite new to Blueprint and am trying to make a script that will allow the player to pick up objects and move them around using the mouse. Like the games Portal or Amnesia the Dark Descent. I know there is a component called AddPhysicsHandleComponent and think that has something to do with what I am trying to accomplish. I would like the player to be able to pick up and drop an object with left click and throw it with right click. I checked the Content Examples and the script looked unnecessarily complicated. Thanks.
