This image has been altered before so it's never going to be as clean as it should be.

But the best way to change the color in this case is to add a Hue & Saturation adjustment layer, select colorize, adjust the sliders to suite.

OK, try this...............make a duplicate of what you have so we don't mess it up.

On the duplicate, Go to select, color range, set the fuzziness to 70, with your mouse select the smoke coming out of the gun, click OK.
You should have a marching ant selection of the smoke and the "Dirty Harry" text.
Fill the selection with white. (Paint bucket tool)
Hit Command/Control + D to deselect.

Maybe even add the finger gaurd back or erase it completely because you can still see it a little bit.
