Best portable steel targets.

I just joined a local range and want to pick up a steel target that I can take with me. It doesn't need to be super compact because I drive a truck and can just toss it in the back and then store it on my garage. I'd like something that is torso/head shaped and is very druable. I'd prefer something static that was perhaps angled downward to direct bullets towards the ground. Something that is of human height 5 or 6 feet (Don't want to shoot at the ground at some little 16" target). I'd like something durable enough to handle heavy revolver calibers. Something that could handle 500mag would be nice but at least 44mag. And something that can handle a miss on it's arms or supports or whatever it has. Links or addresses would be greatly appreciated.

I recently dealt with a company called Artzen in Illinois, I believe.
Purchased 2 of their tripods for steel targets. Nice rigs.
Saved some $$ on targets buying the steel locally here in So Cal.
I understand that steel in the 450 to 520 Brinnel range is the best, safest.

I asked Action Target to build me a safe and durable portable steel target that would be compact and easy to transport to my various classes around the country. What they came up with just blew me away! The stand is extremely strong and stable, yet it still folds up to easily fit in the trunk of even the smallest car. The target heads are made of AR500 armored steel, and there aren't any bolts, brackets, or hooks on the target face to get shot and cause dangerous ricochet.
