We consider selecting a regression model, using a variant of Gets, when there are more variables
than observations, in the special case that the variables are impulse dummies (indicators) for every
observation. We show that the setting is unproblematic if tackled appropriately, and obtain the
finite-sample distribution of estimators of the mean and variance in a simple location-scale model
under the null that no impulses matter. A Monte Carlo simulation confirms the null distribution,
and shows power against an alternative of interest.
