I'm traveling through Tennessee and Kentucky to Columbus, Ohio at the end of the month. I've got my GWCL, and I know GA has reciprocity with TN and KY, but not OH. Does anyone know if, how, where I can have my firearm while in Ohio?

I received a laminated card from the Walton County Probate Court last week. It is labeled "STATE OF GEORGIA WEAPONS CARRY LICENSE" at the very top of the side of the card that contains my fingerprint. The other side is taken up entirely by the words: GEORGIA WEAPONS CARRY LICENSE
Also, at the bottom right of the fingerprint side it reads "June 2010". I'm assuming that that is some type of form update date?

Alright, now it looks like I'm flying to Ohio. Does anyone know of a way for me to legally: a) have my firearm in my hotel room; b) carry it while I'm out on the streets of the fair city of Columbus?

I'm planning a trip to Indiana that may or may not involve passing through Cincinnati, OH.
After looking at several websites, I see they uniformly agree that unlicensed persons traveling to or through Ohio need to be disarmed (fully unloaded and encased guns OK, stored for transport not within reach easy to use).

So I won't be going to or through Ohio. I'll stick with states that we have reciprocity agreements with.

If Ohio allowed unlicensed open carry, I'd do it that way. But they don't, at least as to guns in a vehicle. (I'm not sure about unlicensed open carry on your body away from your vehicle).

Just get a non-resident permit that Ohio honors, easy.
