Gut or steel?

I will be purchasing my first upright in a couple of months. I'm just curious if gut strings are better for achieving a slap-style of playing as opposed to steel. If so, will the tone of gut strings still give a warm, clear tone with volume or, what are the major differences between the two types of strings? I'd appreciate any help.
