Serving Sangamon County and the surrounding Counties within Central Illinois

Arrow Down



Headquartered in Springfield, Illinois, the Springfield Tactical Shooters (STS) Club is affiliated with the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA.) USPSA is the American region of International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC.) IPSC is comprised of competitive shooting clubs and organizations in approximately 67 nations.


Practical shooting is a family-oriented shooting sport that emphasizes speed, accuracy, and power. Handguns are the primary type of firearm used in our IPSC club matches, but "3-gun competitions" can add rifle and shotgun shooting elements. Our handgun shooters can choose to use either semi-automatic pistols or revolvers for each handgun shooting "stage."

Our weekly Thursday competitions are held at Springfield Tactical Shooters Indoor Range in Curran, IL.


The STS Indoor Range is located at 4045 Van Deren Street, Curran, IL, and our phone # is 217-483-4055.

About Us!

On behalf of our shooting club members and their elected officers, we welcome you to the Springfield Tactical Shooters (STS) website. This website will provide you with a wide range of information about our club and the shooting discipline of practical shooting as defined by the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA,) and the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). There is a lot of information located here, but please don’t get overwhelmed. The officers and members of STS simply want to get new shooters involved, grow our tactical shooting sport, and mostly want to educate people about the world of responsible and safe firearm usage.

We are a family-oriented shooting club. We welcome anyone who has interest; no specialized firearms training or advanced shooting experience is required. All we ask is that you come with an open mind to learn, ask many questions and understand and follow the safety protocols. Proper firearm safety is our highest priority.

Many of our members are from Sangamon County, and especially the Springfield IL area. However, our membership base extends throughout the surrounding Central Illinois counties, including Menard, Logan, Macon, Christian, Montgomery, Macoupin, Morgan, and Cass. All are welcome.

We look forward to your visit and thank you for visiting our website! To learn more about our shooting club, you can download our STS Club Bylaws in PDF format. To learn more about the handgun match regulations that the Springfield Tactical Shooters club follows, you can download the current IPSC/USPSA Handgun Competition Rules.

Be Safe & Shoot Straight!
