    Of us going/doing somewhere/something..

    Respected teachers, I cam across a sentence, "It's just a matter of us going out and doing it", keeping this in view can I say say, "It's a matter of my going out and doing it", or I'll have to say, "It's a matter of mine going out and doing it". I would also want to know which of the following are correct.

    It's a matter of him/her going out...
    It's a matter of his/hers going out
    It's a matter of them going out..
    It's a matter of their going out...
