"Can we learn to shoot guns with you? Oh ya sure Hershy is fine with it"
Rick - "Ok cool lets go shoot!"
This week, Rick told them he was going to ask Herschel, saying something to the effect of "With all due respect, I'm going to go ask Herschel". He then walked out of the scene. I don't remember whether they were there, shooting guns, but it's quite obvious that if they were there, Herschel said yes, and if they weren't Herschel said no.
