Deciding that his authority as sheriff gave him the authority to destroy said chapter houses with a massive fire and unite them all in hatred of the Paladin was one way of making peace among several factions of the Pathfinder Society, I suppose...
The Paladin and the Ranger had a bonding moment when they both realized that they worshiped the same deity.
Two potential hiccups with going straight Swashbuckler: (1) they're not proficient in light shields, which the Shield Gauntlet Style requires, and (2) there's no feat that allows you to apply dex to damage on spiked gauntlets. Boo.
Straight Swashbucklers can be proficient with Light Shields if they have the Regional Recluse Trait.
The only way to get Spellstrike aside from being the Magus is to use the Blessed Hammer feat, which lets you channel touch attacks through a warhammer attack. But you have to worship Torag, a very dwarfy god, to get the feat, so that might be against flavor. You also need to be able to cast 3rd-level spells, which means that a Ranger can't pick it up for a while.
But it lets you essentially Spellstrike using Divine Spells.
It's been over a year since the Slayer Class was released in the Advanced Class Guide. In that time, there have only been two books in which more talents for the Slayer have been released: Advanced Class Origins, and Dirty Tactics Toolbox. And the options in Dirty Tactics Toolbox are restricted to the Catfolk race. On top of that, there have been no new Advanced Slayer Talents released.
This wouldn't be so bad, since Slayer's can access a limited amount of Rogue talents through one of their own Talents. This means that, theoretically, every time the Rogue gets more talents, the Slayer gets more talents. However, since the Slayer can only take a select group of rogue talents, any new rogue talents have to specifically say that they can be selected by Slayers. This language has only appeared, as far as I can see, in Blood of Shadows.
Slayers are a cool class. I'd like it if they got some more cool toys to play with. An archetype every now and then is neat, but more Slayer Talents can benefit all Slayers.
And if the Paladin has taken an archetype that trades away lay on hands?
I don't really like this line of reasoning, honestly. Life experience has taught me that the people who boast about their own righteousness the loudest are often the most corrupt.

And again, the local law enforcement will not appreciate the implication that they don't exist or have no authority.
You do know what happened to "crusaders" when they were captured by the Islamic authorities, don't you?
Exactly what said "law-bringers" did to the Orthodox Christians they encountered, I reckon.
