That's essentially what I've always thought. Signature Gear is for gear that is part of the character, but still otherwise normal gear. Indiana Jones is known for his hat (and perhaps whip). Sam Malone (Cheers) could justify having his girl hunting corvette as SG. Cass on Supernatural probably bought that one suit as SG. A knight's horse could be SG (always there when it needs it) or an Ally (helps during adventures).

Gadgets are for things that cannot be purchased. Which limitations you take decide how much plot protection they have.
