OK. Anyone out there know if the Incas ever used such weapons? If so, when and in what numbers?

There seem to have been at least a few in the Inca remnant, or "Neo-Inca", state of Vilcabamba, 1536-72:

Peru's new Governor-General Lope García de Castro accused the Inca of urging uprisings in Chilé and Argentina. After discovering a possible concerted rebellion in Peru he wrote to the King, "there has been much carelessness in this kingdom. The Indians have been allowed to have horses, mares and arquebuses, and many of them know how to ride and shoot an arquebus very well." (García de Castro 60)

During the Araucan wars in Chile, Indian fighters used firearms. There are also examples during the Third Mapuche Revolt ("Great Revolt" 1599 and following).
