This is an Easter egg found in the Halo 3 Beta and in Halo: Reach.
When a non-scoped weapon is zoomed-in, a line of binary code is visible in the lower-left corner. In both games the numbers read 01000100011000010111011001100101. When translated from ASCII eight-bit binary code, the code reads "Dave", a reference to Bungie interface designer Dave Candland.

This achievement may be glitched for some people. If that happens, try Vrruumm's suggestion: "I set my console to offline. Deleted my local save. Loaded up the game, then redid the ADS in a custom game. Turned my console back online. Connected to XBL. Closed out the game. Loaded the game back up. Critical! Loaded the older save. Achievement popped while syncing save. You might just have to delete the local save and resync it, but the way I explained is the way I got it to pop."

KeyRecord1 Language doesn't matter. Make sure you use a non-scoped weapon. If you don't get it, perhaps your network isn't good.

AarrowOM Thanks for explaining, I was trying to figure out what just popped for me.

a banned flask tried in many modes with many guns all non scoped, this appears to be bugged for some players

Vrruumm Yeah it is glitched for me. I tried on Xbox and PC to get it, but it does unlock.

Edit-

I set my console to offline. Deleted my local save. Loaded up the game, then redid the ADS in a custom game. Turned my console back online. Connected to XBL. Closed out the game. Loaded the game back up. Critical! Loaded the older save. Achievement popped while syncing save. You might just have to delete the local save and resync it, but the way I explained is the way I got it to pop.

Kanchanaburi I tried the delete save, and it didn't work at that time. I switched between 2 consoles, and a PC to try. I also have an issue with 7 Moas and no vechicles. I did a run through today while constantly zooming in, and 20 minutes after i finished, this achievement only finally unlocked after dozens of attempts. I don't know what finally did it, but i wish i knew so those other two achivements could unlock.

KeyRecord1 @Kanchanaburi Did you try those two in normal or harder difficulty? At least the latter requires.

I don't know what you mean by custom game. SP or MP? And what do you mean loaded the older save. Older save of what?

edit: I just tried what you suggested, I guess. But I don't know what you mean by older save. No choice is given. It just miggrates files, and thats that. either way. It didn't work for me.

edit 2: so I usually play this on PC, but loaded everything up on console to ataully work on a HALO CE acheivment that you need two controllers for. I thought I would give this one a go. It did not work. tried this solution, i didn't work. I thought forget it, lets just play through Winter contegncy and try to get this and They have always been faster, which is also bugged for me. I just kept zooming in over and over and over and over and over again and playing through the mission, on normal, and it popped for me. I have no idea if I needed to get further in the mission or just spam the ADS or be in ADS a certrain amount of time (which I reached by spamming it over and over)
