How Do I Print Specific Slides From Keynote?

Is there a possibility to tag slides to be printed as a handout. My presentation has about 400 slides but the handout should just have about 100 slides?

    Yes and no. You can choose to print out only certain slides. To do that, select the slides you want using the Command key to select one slide, then another, then another, until you have just the slides you want to print. Then File, Print and choose "Selection" under "Pages" for your print range. This way you can print out slides 2, 6, 14, 18 and 23, for instance.
    There is no way to tag slides to make selecting them easier and easily repeatable, however. You could group the sides so the slides to be printed are the main ones, and the ones you don't want to print are sub-slides one level deeper. But you can't select the main slides with one command, you'd still have to select each one manually. But at least it would be easier to do and to get the same slides the next time you need to do it.
    However, if you have two levels of slides and you "close" the triangles for each of the major slides, thus hiding the minor ones, then a "select all" will result in a selection of only the ones you want to print. So that may be your best bet.
    Another option would be to print all of the slides as a PDF, then open the PDF in Preview and delete the pages you don't want to print. Then print the document.
