Targets seen in magazine

Many months ago I saw targets in a magazine that were used for the review of a handgun (I believe the review was for a Hi-Point handgun). The targets were human figures that were x-rays (greenish color) and in the one target the figure was holding a firearm. The targets were really cool looking but I have not been able to find them. If anyone has found them please let me know where as I would like to purchase them.

Thank you.

Found

I found them. In the latest issue of Combat Handguns, in a review the author credits the target company. Here's the link:

And why is that?
About ten years ago the public range I was a safety officer at had a news crew show up from out of state to do a piece on shooting ranges. They saw a father and son doing self defense drills with human form targets and made a big deal out of it. The range stopped selling the targets and many public ranges followed in their tracks.
