The "-c" option causes gunzip to behave like gzcat i.e. the file is
unzipped to stdout (your screen) rather than another file.
Drop the "-c" option and you should end up with a tar file, which you
will need to unpack with the tar command.
PS the gnu version of tar can (un)compress and (un)archive files in one
