Joe Mantegna may be best-known in Hollywood for starring in everything from “Godfather Part lll” to “Criminal Minds,” but even before he was a big shot on the silver screen the 66-year-old was competing in both pistol and shotgun competitions.

The devout firearms enthusiast is now loading up for his fourth season hosting the Outdoor Channel’s “MidwayUSA’s Gun Stories,” which takes viewers through gun history – exploring classics like the Mauser bolt-action to top-notch firearms like the Adaptive Combat Rifle.

“We will be profiling what we consider fire arms that have an impact on the world – newsworthy historical significance. We do things from looking at the Walther PPK (‘James Bond’ gun) to the Teddy Roosevelt guns that he used in Africa. We cover sniper rifles and the cold pipe bomb,” Mantegna told FOX411. “It’s like wine. There is such a variance in firearms – different manufacturers, different models and different types. Even vintages if you want to call it that.”
