Dick Francis: Twice Shy
Dick Francis: Twice Shy is a 1989 adaptation of Dick Francis' 1981 novel Twice Shy. It was one of the three Dick Francis adaptations released as TV movies in 1989 starring Ian McShane as jockey club investigator David Cleveland, along with Blood Sport and In the Frame. Oddly enough, the character of David Cleveland was only the protagonist in one Dick Francis novel, Slay Ride, but is the protagonist in all three films.

Liam fires on the Garda helicopter. He's clearly miming firing, as the slide doesn't move and the hammer remains down.
